Looking after your smile at home and visiting your dentist in Vancouver regularly will help you avoid serious oral health issues that can be costly and require extensive treatments. We’ll cover the ways you can keep your smile beautiful and healthy.

Preventive dentistry at home

Preventive dentistry begins at home with good oral hygiene. That means practicing a routine of brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing once per day. Eating healthy is also integral to maintaining excellent oral and overall health.
