The Importance of Good Oral Health Care!
We all know the importance of maintaining good oral health care. It seems the older we get, the better we understand the negative consequences of not sticking to a healthy routine. Such consequences can include tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath and even tooth loss. If you have yet to experience a cavity than with an ounce of prevention in terms of good oral care, you can help keep it that way.
What is Good Oral Health Care?
We all know that regular brushing goes a long way towards cavity prevention and good oral health care. However, brushing alone, however, isn’t enough. Flossing is an important part of oral hygiene that is often missed as is cleaning your tongue. Brushing twice daily with a proven anti-cavity toothpaste, will prevent cavities and strengthen enamel and reduce bad breath.
Flossing once a day, or more if needed will dislodge food between teeth that can lead to plaque build-up and cause gum bleeding. Rinsing with mouthwash and cleaning the tongue with a tongue scraper will help rid the tongue of plaque and bacteria giving you that clean fresh feeling.
