Importance of Good Dental Habits

September 6, 2017 No Comments

As we take care of our body, we also need to keep our teeth clean. Most of us don’t follow any routine or good habits to keep the teeth clean. Like our regular body checkups, we should also have regular dental visits.

Why should we follow good dental habits?

Because of the food remains in the teeth, bacteria will grow. This bacterium will break it into some acids that are harmful for teeth. This will cause Gingivitis, which is a gum disease that can make your gums red, swollen and pretty painful. We need to be very careful with the gums, as they support the teeth.  The different acids in the food will damage the enamel of the tooth and will cause holes in the tooth generally known as cavities. Cavities are the small holes in the teeth which will damage the structure of the tooth. It might also result in tooth loss. Tooth issues tend to affect the whole body like in women those who have gum problems, they show pre-term birth and also low birth weight babies. The mouth infections also create serious risks to other major organs. The digestion of our food depends on the way we chew. Hence if there are issues with the teeth, no proper chewing would happen and in turn it may even lead to intestinal failure, or other digestive disorders. People with poor oral health have shown an increased risk of developing heart disease.

Hence in order to maintain good oral care, we need to have regular dental visits. Any issue with our teeth should be attended immediately. The dentist looks after your teeth. He is the only one who could warn you about any issues that might occur in future. It is always suggested to schedule a dental visit every 6 months. If we could adopt some good dental habits, it will help you keep your teeth and in turn the body healthy. Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Flossing is a very important step which no one tends to care about. Hence floss whenever you brush. Using mouthwash helps in killing germs.
