Your dental health is just as important as general physical health and your mental health. Your teeth, mouth, and gums are essential organs in your body, and without them, you will have an extremely hard time digesting and obtaining nutrients. In fact, the first step in the digestive process begins with your mouth, as you chew and break down your food. So, it is extremely important to not let your dental hygiene lapse (and yes, that includes flossing and brushing twice a day.)
A proper dental hygiene routine consists of brushing when you wake up, before you go to bed, and flossing at night. Remember to brush for at least two minutes each time, making tiny circles or even better, use an electric toothbrush. We can recommend one that will work best for you. Make sure you don’t forget to brush your tongue as well, to remove bacteria.
Oral care is essential so you do no suffer from plaque build-up and bacteria, leaving you with bad breath, yellow teeth, and a nasty, sticky biofilm that remains on your teeth. These can all lead to tooth decay, periodontal diseases, or even worse, tooth loss.
Even if your routine is impeccable, you still need to visit the dentist at least twice a year for cleanings and a general check-up. Visiting us, will ensure that problems that are not visible to the naked eye are taken care of before they become larger and costlier problems. Plus, you get to see our friendly masked faces at the office as well as getting that clean mouth feel!
