We all know proper oral hygiene is important not only for your smile, but for your overall health as well. After all, your mouth is the first line of defense against many of our viral illnesses. And after this pandemic, there should be no reason you are not trying to stay as healthy as possible. Regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums, but in between checkups, it’s important that you work to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Here’s why:
Prevent gum disease. Gum disease is infection of tissues surrounding your teeth, and one of the major causes of bone loss if left untreated. Regular dental cleanings and good home care are main factors in preventing gum disease.
Maintain good oral health. Regular dental visits will help your dentist look for any signs of problems with your teeth and gums in order to stop any issues from developing, so having clean teeth will make things easier on everyone involved.
To have a healthy smile. When you have a beautiful smile, you feel more confident and satisfied with your entire being.
Brighten your smile. Drinking coffee, tea and wine or using tobacco can stain your teeth. Brushing removes built-up stains and leave you with freshly polished teeth.
Freshen your breath. Good oral hygiene is the best way to prevent persistent bad breath.
Maintain good overall health. Experts know that there is a correlation between poor oral health and chronic inflammatory diseases such as: cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other problems such as: stroke, premature and low birth weight.
