Brushing, Flossing, And Whole Body Health
It’s a fact… regularly and consistently brushing your teeth is the only way to maintain good oral hygiene. As soon as 20 minutes after we eat, plaque begins to develop. Brushing at least twice a day (or more if you are as concerned about good oral hygiene like myself) helps to keep both your teeth AND your gums healthy.
Gums play a huge role in staying healthy. In fact, gum disease can lead to life-threatening illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, among others.
Brushing and flossing every day reduces and minimizes the bacteria that can enter your blood stream. And, according to Dr. Oz, the simple act of flossing on a daily basis can add six (6) years to your life.
Even though tooth enamel is the strongest substance in our body, plaque accumulation will destroy it over time, leading to tooth loss and great physical and financial pain.
So, remember… brush AT LEAST twice a day, floss daily, and ask us to review home care techniques at your next visit! If you have any questions about proper brushing or flossing techniques - or to schedule your next appointment, click here to contact us!
