Dental Prevention – Preventive Dentistry Montreal

Great Oral health starts at home

People of all ages recognize the importance of drinking plenty of water, resting and exercising regularly. The same is obviously true for a balanced diet and dental hygiene at home. After all, maintaining a healthy mouth is also an important step towards a healthier life.

Dental hygiene and regular preventive care is the best way to keep your mouth healthy and avoid future dental treatments. To find out how Monk Dental center can help you maintain your teeth and gums healthy between regular visits, please call 514-768-3331.

At Monk Dental center, we are firmly committed to dental prevention. Teeth should last a lifetime and we help our patients achieve this goal. Our systematic approach to oral care helps recognize individual susceptibilities and control risk factors that would otherwise cause cavities and other dental problems.

It all starts with your diet

Did you know that your diet can contribute to developing cavities? Foods that contain carbohydrates (sugars and starches) include soft drinks, ice cream, candies, milk, cakes, rice, fruits, vegetables, and juices. It only takes a little sugar for bacteria to cause cavities and you may be surprised to know which of the foods you eat contain sugar.

The bacteria in your mouth interact with the food deposits left on your teeth after meals and produce acids that modify the enamel of your teeth by demineralizing their structure and promoting cavities. At Monk Dental center we know that every person is different and we want to help you make the right choices every day.

Recommendations for brushing your teeth in Montreal

  • The head of your toothbrush should be small and made of soft nylon bristles with smooth ends.
  • Be careful some brushes might be too abrasive and can wear out teeth enamel
  • It is more important to brush your teeth twice a day for 3-4 minutes rather than five times a day for 1 minute
  • Keep a toothbrush at work!
  • If you don’t have a toothbrush, rinse your teeth with water for 30 seconds to one minute after meals

When you visit Monk Dental center, we will recommend a toothbrush, manual or ultrasonic, that best suits your needs and tell you how often it should be replaced based on your lifestyle.

Flossing Montreal

Dental floss comes in many forms. Although waxed dental floss might be easier to slip between teeth or restorations, unwaxed dental floss makes a grinding sound to let you know that your teeth are clean. When you visit our office, we will discuss which type of dental floss is best for you and how often you should use it.
