Preventive Care

Preventive Care

Prevention is better than cure, and that’s a golden rule, especially in the field of medicine. The irregular maintenance of oral health is something that can lead to long-term dental complications. It is, therefore, our intention that our clients, along with all the visitors to our website, have access to all the information that they need on maintaining oral hygiene. We ensure our clients and visitors are beneficiaries to our preventive care guide that we have carefully curated.

Preventive Care

Our preventive care guide is universalist in its directive. People of all ages, through their entire lifespan, can rely on our preventive care guide. Preparing a preventive care guide is one thing, however, it will take discipline and regularity on your part to ensure we arrive at the collective result that we’re after.

  • The foundation of solid oral hygiene has remained, and will always remain, brushing your teeth twice. However, simply brushing your teeth isn’t enough. Here at Rideau Dental On 4th Street, we can help you decide the softness or hardness of your toothbrush and determine the choice of toothpaste based on their suitability for your long-term dental health. Furthermore, not all toothpastes are what they claim to be. So, we have our recommendations for your benefit.
  • The toothbrush has its limitations; it can’t sufficiently access the gaps between your teeth. To complete your dental care routine, you also need to floss. As you regularly floss, you’re able to access distant corners of your mouth that your brush can’t reach. Alongside your floss, regularly using a mouthwash is another essential to your daily routine that you must look to add. Our professionals can guide you with the right flossing instructions.
  • As a final step, we urge you not to skip regular dental visits. If you’ve not yet scheduled your 6-monthly dental appointment, then contact us right away. Allowing our dentists to periodically assess your dental condition is the entire premise of preventive care. Our dental professionals will assess your oral health. While doing so, they are in a suitable position to prevent a condition from getting worse. As a part of your regular dental check-up, you will also be provided with critical information about the suitability of dental sealants, about special mouthguards, and most importantly, about what constitutes a balanced diet that will keep your teeth and gums in good shape and color.

Here’s hoping these preventive measures will be put to good use. You can share your experience of following our guide when you come down here for an appointment. Here at Rideau Dental On 4th Street, we have been able to achieve remarkable success in helping our patients maintain strong and healthy teeth and retain their beautiful smile. All this, while maintaining a pleasant environment and utmost professionalism in our clinic.
