We want Australians to keep their smile for life!Here are Monash Dental Group we highlight the importance of preventative oral health care. Our aim is to help Australians of all ages to care for their teeth and gums, and to combat the idea that they will need to have teeth removed during their life because of tooth decay or gum disease.
The four key messages to reinforce the importance of maintaining good oral health throughout a person’s life are:
- Brush teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
- Clean between teeth daily using floss or interdental brushes
- Eat a healthy, balanced diet and limit added sugar
- Visit the dentist regularly for preventative care and checkups
