Brushing your teeth is essential for proper oral hygiene. Skipping or doing a half hazard job will lead to poor oral health and possibly affect your general health. This can lead to tooth decay which can lead to tooth loss. You must brush your teeth and floss properly every day if you want strong teeth and a healthy mouth.
Complications of Not Brushing Properly
Plaque is a yellow film produced by bacteria in your mouth. It coats the teeth and deteriorates the enamel that protects your teeth. Plaque build-up leads to cavities, infection, and possible tooth loss if not treated. Plaque build-up also causes gum disease called gingivitis. Gingivitis can eventually turn into periodontitis, a bone infection in the bones that support the teeth.
