Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Description

Regular brushing and preventative dental care helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

​Regular brushing  removes the plaque that causes tooth decay and stimulates your gums to help prevent gum disease. Good oral hygiene prevents gum disease and multiple other diseases​

Oral health is a key indicator of overall health, wellbeing and quality of life. Oral health is a state of being free from chronic mouth and facial pain, oral and throat cancer, oral infection and sores, periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay, tooth loss and other diseases and disorders that limit an individual’s capacity in biting, chewing, smiling, speaking, and psychosocial wellbeing.  

A key component to proper oral hygiene is regular visits to your dentist. Your dentist can detect a whole lot more than cavities from looking in your mouth. Among the problems and diseases, they can discover with a thorough examination are:

  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Acid reflux
  • Tooth grinding
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart problems
  • Dementia
  • Mental health issues
  • Oral cancers
