Healthy gums and teeth equal a healthy body
We all know the basics of rules for keeping our teeth healthy… brush and floss twice daily, and we’ll be okay. When it comes down to it, this is simply not enough. There are many different things that affect the healthiness of your entire mouth. The best way to keep your mouth in good shape is to brush your teeth in the morning, mid day and evening, but also after every meal that you consume. Also, avoid eating any sugars or candies that just sit in your mouth for long periods of time, as this can cause tooth decay and loss of enamel. Coffee and tea are also a big problem when it comes to discoloration. It is best to drink any and every liquid through a straw. This keeps fewer sugars from reaching your teeth and gums. You should make sure to visit your dentist at least every 6 months, regardless of whether or not you are experiencing any problems.
By not following instructions such as the previously mentioned, you are putting your body at risk. Unhealthy teeth and gums can cause gum disease and gingivitis, but it also puts you at a much higher risk for heart disease and diabetes as well.
