Did you know that poor oral health has been linked to heart attacks, diabetes, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis, and even premature birth? With serious conditions like these at stake, it becomes obvious why your dentist urges you to maintain positive healthy habits for your oral health.
This holiday season with all the delicious food and aromas nearby, brings tooth decay with it. Once tooth decay begins, the tooth enamel of your teeth begins to wear down and deteriorate. Once your tooth enamel is week, cavities are created and give constant attacks from oral bacteria and sugar that has been left, due to lack of brushing or flossing. If cavities are left untreated, tooth decay can result in serious oral complications and serious pain.
That is why it is essential to keep up with the daily habits of brushing and flossing your teeth. Regularly brushing twice a day while flossing at least once a day, is the best way to help your teeth stay as clean as possible. Brush those sugary treats away, so your smile can shine each day.
