Tooth-Gum

As one of the top oral surgeons in the country, we have had the pleasure of treating patients from all walks of life. Regardless of age, gender, physical appearance, weight, etc., we have noticed ONE very common problem amongst most patients who come in for wisdom teeth emergency treatments or any other tooth extraction procedures...they simply don't know how to care for their teeth!

It's quite shocking that many people still aren't aware of the proper steps of teeth maintenance even after all the information prepared by top dentists and oral surgeons in the industry. More surprisingly, oral maintenance information is easily accessible online but most people still don't practice them (for whatever reasons). Poor oral maintenance coupled with wisdom teeth pain, could make the tooth removal surgery more complicated than it should be.

Besides having a good yet affordable oral surgeon or dentist to help you out with all your dental needs, it's also really important that you practice these teeth maintenance tips in your daily life.

1. Brush at Least Twice a Day

This oral maintenance tip is pretty straight forward and you should do it when you get up in the morning and right before bed. In fact, you can choose to brush your teeth after each heavy meal. Just make sure that you don't brush too hard and ruin the integrity of your gums and teeth enamel. Brushing helps eliminate plaque build-up and removes food debris that is stuck between your teeth and gums. The trick here is to be gentle yet thorough with your brushing stroke.

2. Flossing

Most oral surgeons, including ourselves, recommend that you floss at least once or twice a day to make sure that there are no plaque and food debris remaining in the area between two teeth (inter-proximal region). Gingivitis and tooth decay can develop if you don't floss regularly.

3. Curb Your Sweet Tooth

Soft drinks, energy drinks, artificial fruit juices, muffins, cupcakes, chocolates - they've all got one thing in common...too much of it will ruin your teeth! So, make sure you minimise sugar consumption and drink lots of water.

4. Fluoridated Water

Simply put, fluoride is the most cost effective way of preventing cavities. Fluorides are found in regular tap water and 70% of the Australian population have fluoridation in their water supply, especially in metro areas like Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and beyond.

5. Reduce Consumption of Acidic Beverages

Red wine, coffee and tea. These beverages are absolutely enjoyable but they are all acidic, and could destroy teeth enamel. So, whenever possible, try reducing the consumption of these drinks.

6. Avoid Teeth Grinding

It's okay to grind your teeth once in awhile. But when it starts becoming a habit, it could really damage to the integrity of your teeth. Teeth grinding can be caused by anxiety and stress, and usually occurs during sleep. An abnormal bite or crooked teeth also causes teeth grinding. If conditions are already severe and you need help to overcome this problem, we recommend that you speak to our experienced and affordable oral surgeon in Melbourne or Sydney.

7. Regular Visits to an Affordable Oral Surgeon or Dentist
