The Importance of Oral Health
Everything in this world wears, and you can say the same to our teeth enamel. As we grow older, it becomes difficult to keep our teeth clean and healthy, and there will come a point in our lives when we can no longer repair it and perhaps lose everything. And the reason why now is the best time to start caring for your teeth. When it also comes to dental care, another reality is that plaque continuous to build up no matter how regularly we brush and floss. Since plaque contains acids that eat up the enamel of our teeth, it causes tooth decay, and the primary reason for it. Brushing and flossing can help lessen plaque buildup yet there are better tools that help eliminate them completely to prevent plaque buildup on the teeth.
There are risks when one has cavities or when teeth are decaying because if the matter gets worse, it does not only require simplex tooth extraction, it might even require surgery which can lead to complications beyond simple pain but to dangerous infections that affect your blood stream. Cavities have harmful bacteria which can be swallowed when eating, and you can prevent this if you ensure your teeth’s health.
Gum disease caused by built-up plaque is one major cause of tooth loss in adults. Falling teeth is the result of plaque going down and affecting the roots of the teeth which cause it to loosen, and this is due to the disease which makes out gums brittle.
IF you visit your dentist regularly and practice good oral hygiene, then the chances of these happening to you can be greatly reduced.
Studies have shown that there is a connection between oral and overall health. There are diseases, like heart disease and stroke that can be prevented through regular dental cleaning. These professionals can detect early stages of life-threatening medical problems that may arise from unhealthy oral care during a routine oral exam.
Drinking coffee, tea or wine, smoking or some types of food can also stain the outer layer or the enamel of your tooth. Sometimes because of old age, the dentin, or the inner structure of your teeth darkens or gets a yellowing tint, and makes the teeth look stained. When the outer cover of the teeth gets thinner with age, the internal discoloration becomes more visible, and the dentin shows through. Extrinsic and intrinsic factors can because staining. Tooth discoloration can either be blotted out by bleaching to whiten it, or crowning/veneering it may be required to cover it up. This also is one of the many other reasons why you need to visit your dentist.
Part of good oral hygiene is having fresh breath so bad breath is eliminated. It is not enough to just brush and floss to get an odor-free mouth; professional cleaning is necessary.
