April is National Oral Health Month

Although the mouth is part of the body, we often think of it as something separate. We often ignore bleeding or tender gums, while an irritation or pain elsewhere in the body would mean a trip to the doctor.

Oral disease, like any other disease, needs to be treated. A chronic infection, including one in the mouth, is a serious problem that should not be ignored. Everything that happens in your mouth affects your whole body, which is why it is so important to visit your dentist regularly! Only your dentist has the training, skills and expertise to properly address all your oral health care needs.

When was the last time you came in for your exam and cleaning? Regular dental exams help prevent small problems from getting worse. Make sure to come in for your regular exam and cleaning! (Click here to make an appointment)

As part of a healthy lifestyle and to help reduce the risk of oral disease, we will give you a few easy-to-follow steps to good oral health!

1. Keep your mouth clean

Use a soft-bristle toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
Wait at least 20–30 minutes after eating before brushing your teeth.
Floss every day.
Eat a well-balanced diet.
Limit foods and beverages containing sugar or carbohydrates.
Ideal snack foods: cheese, nuts, vegetables, and non-acidic fruits.
Look for oral care products with the Canadian Dental Association (CDA) Seal.

2. Check your mouth regularly

Look for signs of gum disease:

Red, shiny, puffy, sore or sensitive gums
Bleeding when you brush or floss
Bad breath that won’t go away

3. Eat well

Good nutrition helps build strong teeth and gums.
Munch on mouth healthy snacks like cheeses, nuts, vegetables, and non-acidic fruits.

4. See your dentist regularly

48% of Canadians who haven’t seen a dentist in the past year have gum disease. Regular dental exams and professional cleanings are the best way to prevent and detect problems before they get worse.

5. Don’t smoke or chew tobacco

Smoking and chewing tobacco can cause oral cancer, heart disease, gum disease, and a variety of other cancers.
