A Summary of his advice are as the following:
It is no coincidence that the food and or drinks that is poor for your oral health is likely to be also harmful for your general health. According to Dr. Ali AlSaqoby, foods and drinks that contains high amount of sugar and or acidic should be limited and ideally cut down completely.
When listing drinks that is high in sugar and acid, fizzy drinks tops the list. Even the sugar free options are not safe, as they still remain acidic! Ideally these drinks get replaced with water that hydrates and lower the acidity of the mouth, to reduce the risk of the enamel layer of the tooth dissolving, creating tooth sensitivity and or cavities forming.
Food/snacks that is high in sugar should be limited to meal times, to reduce the strain on teeth coming from the frequency of acid produced as the result of sugar containing food. Gradually decreasing the intake of these harmful sugary and acidic contain foods and drinks will contribute an important role to preventing dental diseases
Oral hygiene routine
Brushing twice a day gently with soft tooth brush (as soon as you wake up and just before you sleep is of great importance) According to Dr. Ali AlSaqoby brushing for two minutes in each of the two sessions is not sufficient to clean the teeth completely as %40 of the tooth surfaces can only be reached by the floss, and thus the use of the floss once daily is recommended to fully clean your pearly whites.
According to Dr. Ali AlSaqoby, not only smoking is a door that opens to many health chronic diseases such as heart and lung diseases, it is a door that opens to many dental health issues such as gum diseases , jaw bone loss , discolored/ stained teeth and increasing risk of developing oral cancer. “Nowadays, many dedicated centers are here to help you quit, so be sure to seek help” said the Kuwait dentist.
Regular check ups
Visiting a well-trained dental practioner twice a year is fundamental to early detection of any possible dental diseases such as cavity to prevent any excessive treatment. “Patient will be well aware of their oral health status in their checkup visit as, not every dental disease is visible by the eyes and require X-rays” says Dr. Ali AlSaqoby.
