The foundations of good dental care

Having a good dental health plan for yourself is of the utmost importance for the health of your teeth and gums, as well as your overall health. It’s important to know exactly what you need to do to give yourself the best chance of preventing issues like gum disease, cavities and bad breath.

The foundations of good dental care

Three basic things

The three most important things you should always think of when it comes to your oral health is brushing, flossing and using mouth wash. These may be simple tasks but it is amazing when you realise the amount of people that do not do these three simple things. It is important to get in a habit of doing these regularly to give yourself the best chance of preventing things, such as cavities and gum disease.

Visiting your dentist and hygienist

You should make regular visits for dental care in Navan and this will also include a visit to the hygienist and most good ones will book you in every 6 months to a year, so you don’t have to be worried about remembering how long it has been since you were last at the Navan dentist and when you should book an appointment next.

Visiting your hygienist is an extremely good way to complement your visits to the dentist. Hygienists are experienced in removing calculus from your teeth and in between them. They are also experts in flossing and brushing, and have a wide knowledge of various dental products that can help your individual situation. Hygienists should be able to make an assessment of your teeth and what you need improve on in terms of brushing and what products can assist you too.


Diet is another important component of looking after your teeth and gums. People have a clear idea now that sugar is a big cause of plaque and can lead to tooth decay, so it is important to check food labels to know exactly what is in your food because sugar can often be “hidden” in many foods that you might not expect.

You should eat a well balanced diet and at times this is going to include sugar, but obviously this amount needs to be kept to a minimum.
