Tooth decay is the eternal fight we have to endure in Sunbury in an effort to keep our teeth healthy throughout our lives. Good oral hygiene is the first step towards winning the battle and if you have a look at the vast array of products in the shops from brushes and pastes to flosses and mouthwashes, you have a pretty good chance of stopping decay from taking hold. Then of course, by keeping up with bi-annual appearances at the dentist surgery, any signs of the problem can be thwarted at source, with cleaning, de-scaling, polishing and the odd filling. This should be enough to get your mouth through unscathed. However, take your eye of the ball, and you can find yourself in a world of hurt, both physically and financially. If tooth decay sets in, you are faced with some pretty hefty procedures from root canal treatment to tooth replacement, and they aren’t cheap either to rectify. Of course then, if the teeth get bad, you run the gauntlet of getting gum disease, leading to heart disease, and losing your teeth altogether. These reasons alone should be enough to scare you into looking after your teeth alone. Do some research into how to look after your teeth with your dentist and between the pair of you, you should be able to come up with a game plan for a healthy mouth.
