If you’re interested in keeping oral disease at bay, then you have come to the right blog. Today, our dentist, Dr. Warren Cheung, is happy to give you the tips you need to prevent tooth decay, oral cancer, gum disease and other oral diseases. Doing so can help you have the strong, healthy and functional smile you need. The tips to help you maintain a top-notch oral health that’s free of oral disease include:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: To do so, you need to brush twice a day (with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste), floss once a day (with a flossing product of your choice), rinse once a day (with antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash) and attend your checkups every six months. These tasks can help you remove the dangerous substances from your teeth and gums that promote oral disease.

-Watch what you eat: There are many foods that can give you the nutrients you need to prevent gum disease and other dental issues, like protein, fruits, vegetables and dairy products, so do your best to eat those foods and stay away from sugary, acidic and high-carbohydrate foods.

-Avoid tobacco products: Tobacco is very dangerous for the smile. It can cause cavities, gum disease, oral cancer and other oral and overall health problems. So, make sure to avoid tobacco products altogether.
