Dentist in Manly - Prevention


As the saying goes, “prevention is better than cure.” There are many ways in which we can prevent diseases which afflict the mouth. At home, we should brush twice a day and floss. We can stick to a healthy diet that is low in sugar and has adequate amounts of diary. However professional care is also necessary to maintain an excellent standard of oral health. Calculus (also called tartar) builds up over time and needs to be removed. Calculus is plaque that has hardened up over time. Plaque is the soft white material which you can scrap off your teeth with a tooth pick, it is filled with bacteria. Even if you brush and floss well, you will still get calculus build up. Straight after brushing, plaque starts building up again, which will eventually become calculus.
