In health, it's better to prevent than to cure.
At Estepona Dental Clinic, we are concerned about your dental health. Prevention is better than cure. Trust the dentists at Estepona Dental Clinic.
The team of dentists and dental practitioners at Estepona Dental Clinic is committed to ensuring that our patients know the best way to care for their mouths. If prevention is not possible, early diagnosis is extremely beneficial in minimising the impact of a dental issue and therefore simplifying its treatment.
Often, the initial stages of oral diseases occur without any pain, so the only way to detect them in time is through regular check-ups. Our staff will contact you to remind you of your review appointments. In this regard, to prevent the onset of cavities, please consider the following recommendations.
The Role of General Health in Oral Health
Oral health directly reflects the body’s overall health. A well-nourished and balanced body benefits oral health. It’s essential to maintain a balanced diet, not only reducing sugar but also incorporating foods rich in calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin C, vital for strengthening gums and teeth. Furthermore, avoiding tobacco and limiting alcohol intake is crucial for maintaining a healthy mouth.
Appropriate Tools for Good Hygiene
Not all mouths are the same, and what works for one person might not be suitable for another. That’s why having the right tools is essential. From toothbrushes of varying sizes and hardness to different types of dental floss, at Estepona Dental Clinic, we guide our patients to choose the best for their needs.
Water: The Essential Liquid
Water is not only crucial for general well-being but also plays a key role in oral health. Drinking water, especially after consuming acidic or sugary foods and drinks, helps neutralise and eliminate acids that can demineralise tooth enamel. In areas where water is fluoridated, regular consumption also contributes to strengthening tooth enamel.
