At-home oral hygiene. The most important prevention technique is brushing and flossing at least twice a day to remove dental plaque.

 

Fluoride use. Fluoride treatments are provided in dental offices, and dentists recommend using fluoride toothpastes and mouth rinses at home.

 

Diet. A balanced diet is a dental health essential. Foods with sugars and carbohydrates feed bacteria that produce dental plaque.

 

Regular dental visits. Most dental conditions are painless at first. Regularly visits to your dentist will reveal dental problems.

 

Dental cleanings and screenings. A dental cleaning (prophylaxis) is recommended every six months.

 

Sealants. Sealants are thin composite coatings placed on the chewing surfaces of back permanent teeth to protect from tooth decay.
