Prevention Prevent tooth decay having a sensible diet and practising good oral hygiene:

• Limit snacking in between meals and consumption of refined carbohydrates e.g. sweets, cake, ice cream

• Brush your teeth with a fluoride tooth paste twice daily

• Floss at least once a day

Visit your dentist for regular check-ups so that decay or a defective filling can be detected and treated early before there is irreversible damage to the dental pulp.

Avoid chewing on hard objects such as ice, hard nuts or pens to prevent cracked teeth. Wear a mouth guard if you participate in contact sports to avoid dental trauma. Any activity involving speed has an increased chance of falling and the potential of getting in contact with a hard piece of equipment. A mouth guard helps to distribute the force of impact in any accident to prevent the likelihood of dental injury to the front teeth. Do not clench or grind your teeth. If you clench or grind your teeth at night, speak to your dentist about getting a night guard.
