The dental appointment with Dr. Christopher Emuedue of Greenville Family Dentistry is a very important part of preventive dental care, but prevention starts at home. The most important preventive technique should be utilized every day which includes brushing and flossing at least twice a day (or after every meal) to reduce plaque. If plaque is left on the teeth, this can lead to periodontal disease and other dental complications.
Preventive measures include eating a healthy diet, visiting our dental office twice a year for routine checkups, practicing proper oral hygiene habits at home, and avoiding cigarettes and alcohol. Foods containing sugar can cause tooth decay. Instead, choose foods that are more beneficial to teeth, like cheese, fruit, nuts, and vegetables. Additionally, poor oral hygiene habits, as well as smoking and drinking, can negatively impact your oral health.
