Visit your dentist for regular check-ups
Prevent tooth decay by 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 fluoridated toothpaste twice daily
Floss at least once a day
Wear a mouth guard if you participate in contact sports to avoid dental trauma.
Avoid excessive chewing on hard objects such as ice, hard nuts or pens to prevent cracked 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.
