Millions of people experience problems with tooth decay, bad breath and gum disease. These are all common dental problems that dentists treat every day. Even though they may seem easy to treat, they are all problems we can actually prevent at home.

  • dental problems, common teeth ailmentsThe one thing that will help you with any dental problem you come across is a good oral hygiene routine. It is stressed so often to brush and floss because people don’t do it as often as they should. Try brushing for 2-3 minutes to really clean every area.
  • It’s easy to forget to floss but try to keep some in your purse, glove department, bedside table or anywhere else that will remind you to floss. By getting rid of sticky food along your gums and teeth you are removing plaque causing bacteria which will prevent tooth decay, gum disease and lingering food that may leave unwanted smells.
  • One of the problems many people have is that they only go to the dentist when something is wrong. We need to be getting our teeth checked regularly at least twice a year. Maintaining regular checkups will ensure that your teeth are in great shape all year around.
  • Even though we all know it’s important to eat healthy, it’s also important to drink healthy too. Many dental problems are caused because we are constantly sipping on a drink filled with sugar. These beverages increase your chances of getting all kinds of teeth ailments. Instead of coffee, soda, or juices with large doses of sweetener try green tea, water and 100% juice.

Small things like flossing more often and limiting your coffee intake can actually make huge impacts for the health of your teeth. If you have any questions regarding your teeth or need help getting the beautiful smile you want, contact Sugar Land Dental Spa.
