The first week of August marks Dental Health Week and it is a great time to assess your oral hygiene routine. This year’s campaign is focusing on women’s dental health which can be affected by changing hormone levels during puberty, pregnancy and menopause. It is important during these times that women are vigilant in maintaining their oral hygiene routine.
Assessing your personal risk for dental problems
Preventive dentistry is important for everyone regardless of age or gender. At Apple Dental we create a fully customised preventive treatment plan for you once we have assessed your oral health and the level of risk you may have for dental problems. We take into account factors such as changing hormone levels, diet and lifestyle choices (such as smoking) before recommending a thorough dental hygiene program.
Gaining and maintaining great oral hygiene
Good oral hygiene is relatively simple to maintain and our friendly dental team can work with you to ensure you know all the most effective brushing and flossing techniques. We can also advise you on which toothpaste will work best and whether you may benefit from any additional measures such as fluoridated mouthwash. Please don’t forget to come and see us regularly as your check-ups are vital for maintaining good oral hygiene and great dental health.
