What should you be doing for your teeth and gums between regular clean and check appointments at Quay Dental? Brush and floss every day. It takes an average of about three days for plaque to harden and become calculus (tartar) on your teeth. At this point, it becomes impossible to brush away and must be scraped off at your next visit to your Sydney dentist. If left in place, it will eventually eat away at your teeth, causing decay and bone loss.
You can avoid this by brushing and flossing your teeth thoroughly every morning and evening. When possible, brush and floss after you eat, as well, and be sure to drink plenty of water, especially when you cannot take the time to brush. The more you do this, the better your dental health will be and the less likely you’ll be to develop cavities and other oral problems.
