Taking proper care of your teeth should be a fundamental part of the health and wellness routine of every person. On a day to day basis, it's not much effort; a few minutes of brushing and flossing during the morning and evening is a small price to pay to maintain good oral health and avoid trips to the dentist.
Although brushing and flossing are the best preventative measures you can take with regards to oral hygiene, there can sometimes be unforeseeable problems that require some expertise in setting right. Wisdom teeth are an excellent example of this, as their removal is entirely dependent on how the bones have formed over the years.
No amount of preventative dental hygiene can forego the need to extract troublesome wisdom teeth, which is one of many reasons why it's important to make regular trips to the dentist. Keeping proper oral health is a matter of taking good care of the everyday things like brushing and flossing, brushing your tongue, and being thorough, especially around the back teeth.
With that in order, regular trips to the dentist give you an idea of how your teeth and gums change over time, and whether any issues might be worth a little bit of medical intervention to avoid a much more painful experience later on.
Any dentist worth their salt will tell you that its more important to maintain a good oral care routine than to worry about what brush, toothpaste, or floss to buy. For more information on Victoria BC's dental and oral care service, start by checking out our member offers below.
