Six oral health plan steps we recommend:

4.  Eat healthy foods and avoid sugary treats.

5.  Eliminate tobacco use.

6.  Schedule regular dental hygiene visits.


Top 10 Oral Health Tips from the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association

 1.  Be a tooth two-timer! - Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste (2 x 2 minutes).

 2.  Fight with floss! - Floss between your teeth  Using dental floss daily can help keep gums healthy.

 3.  Rinse germs down the drain!  - Rinse using an antiseptic mouthwash to kill germs that cause cavities 

      and gum disease.

 4.  You are what you eat! - Make healthy food choices.  Nutritious food, low in sugar, is good for both oral

      and overall health.

 5.  Protect your pearly whites!  - Wear a mouthguard when playing or practising sports.  

 6.  Butt Out! - Choose to be tobacco free.  Using tobacco products can stain your teeth and increase your

      risk of developing oral cancer

 7.  Sealants for Success! - Want your child to stay cavity free?  Ask if pit and fissure sealants are a good

      option for your child.

 8.  Open up! - Check your mouth once a month.  Know what's normal.  If you have a sore that does not heal

      within two weeks, get it checked by a health professional.

 9.  Re-think your drink! - Drinking sweetened beverages and acidic fluids increases your risk of developing

      cavities.

10. Book it! - Visit your dental hygienist regularly. Begin visits by age one and continue throughout your

       life.
