A Lifetime of Dental Health

For patients who want to maintain optimal oral health

Our dentists at Delta Dental Clinic have put together this infographic for our patients who want to maintain optimal dental health throughout their lives.

Kid-friendly dental care

  • Using a washcloth, gently clean your baby’s gums. This gets your baby used to oral care.
  • Start brushing when the first tooth appears and floss when the teeth start to touch.
  • Teach older children to brush twice a day and floss once a day. Use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste.
  • Take your child to the dentist twice a year. Make the trips a positive experience at a younger age.
  • Ask your dentist about additional treatments. Consider fluoride and sealants for permanent teeth.

Adult techniques for healthy teeth

  • Brush twice and floss once daily. This removes plaque and prevents decay.
  • See your dentist every 4-6 months – regular check-ups can catch problems early.
  • Be alert for gum disease symptoms like red, swollen, or bleeding gums.
  • Limit intake of sugary or starchy foods, as the contribute to plaque buildup.
  • Talk to your East Van Dental professional about cosmetic treatments like whitening, veneers, and other options to improve your smile.

Savvy senior strategies for dental health

  • Maintain a good brushing and flowing routine. An electric toothbrush can make brushing a little easier.
  • Try toothpaste that reduces sensitivity, as this is common in seniors.
  • Many medications can cause dry mouth so talk to your dentist about dry mouth treatments.
  • Discuss any health conditions that affect your overall health, such as heart disease, diabetes, or other issues, with your dentist.
  • Get treated for partial or total tooth loss. Dentures and implants are great options.
