WHY IS PREVENTION IMPORTANT?
Oral Health for Overall Health
Proper oral hygiene does not only prevent cavities and periodontal disease but also affects our overall health and well-being.
Proper oral hygiene are the things that should have been taught to us as children, and the habits that we should be passing down to our own. Brushing your teeth in the morning and the evening, flossing regularly, and avoiding sugary treats that help cause cavities are the building blocks on which a good smile and healthy oral hygiene are built upon.
Are there any other good oral hygiene practices?
Yes! On top of brushing an flossing regularly and having a healthy well-balanced diet, consistent visits to your dentist will ensure that your teeth and gum health remain in check.
What is the benefit from having good oral health?
Having good oral health isn't just about avoiding bad breath or a crooked smile. Bad oral health has been linked to other health problems, such as:
Diabetes | Heart Disease | Osteoporosis | Respiratory Disease | Cancer
