FROM LITTLE THINGS...


Every small step in the improvement of your oral health can make a big

impact to your overall health.


Northland Dental Group encourages you to take the little steps that can make a big impact

to your overall health. From understanding your daily routine, to regular visits to your

dentist, we are here to guide you and answer any questions you may have.


START GOOD HABITS EARLY

Children should be assisted by their parents when brushing and flossing until around

the age of 8 or 9. At this age, their physical dexterity develops further allowing for better

control of their toothbrush or floss. A good reference for this time is when your child starts

using a pen at school, instead of a pencil.


UNDERSTANDING SUGAR

Sugar is one of the biggest factors that can contribute to the development of tooth decay.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends adults consume only six or less teaspoons

(approximately 24 grams) of free sugar to decrease their risk of tooth decay.


REGULAR VISITS TO YOUR DENTIST

Regular dental check ups are important as they help to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

You should have a regular dental visit at least every 6 months or as recommended by your

dental professional.

Prevention is always better than seeking a cure. Maintain regular visits to your dentist

to keep your oral health in check.
