Benjamin Franklin said “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” – and how right he was!
Taking care of your mouth and teeth can help you to avoid some of the less comfortable services dentists offer. With regular preventative care, potential problems can be detected early and treated in a minimally invasive manner. This approach also represents best value for money as it can save you money in the long run.
The following can help you to take good care of your oral health:

- Regular check-ups with your DB dentist, preferably every six months.
- Avoiding, or limiting, sugary drinks and food.
- Not smoking.
- Drinking lots of water.
Meet with your DB dentist to show you the best cleaning techniques and inform you how your diet can affect your oral health.
