Adopting a Healthy Lifestyle

To maintain good health and a happy life, it is important for you to keep your mouth and body healthy. Here are a few ways:

  1. Carefully manage your blood glucose levels.

  2. Smoking worsens your oral problems. If you smoke a lot, ask us about help with reducing or quitting. 

  3. Make healthy food choices all the time.

  4. Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day to prevent build up of plaque on your teeth.

  5. Use a dental floss or inter-dental brushes to clean between your teeth. 

  6. If you use dentures, remove them overnight to give your gum tissues enough rest. 

  7. Keep checking your mouth regularly for signs of problems - bleeding gums, dryness, white patches or a bad taste in the mouth.
