Oral health is really important. It can prevent a range of harmful conditions and also contributes to good overall health. There have been several recent scientific studies that have shown how conditions such as gum disease can lead to serious illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease.
So, in order to enjoy good oral health it is imperative that you follow a few simple rules and make necessary changes to your lifestyle. One of the most important aspects of oral health is diet: having a healthy diet can contribute to healthy teeth and gums, while having a diet high in sugar and fat can bring about serious oral health problems.
Those foods that are high in sugar can cause the protective layer of the teeth to become weakened, which makes the teeth more susceptible to decay. Healthy eating ensures the body gets all the vital nutrients it needs to perform and will also boost the immune system and make the body more robust and resistant to illness and infection.
Obviously, taking care of your teeth and gums will also go a long way to protecting against decay and gum disease. Dentists recommend patients that patients adopt a good oral hygiene routine from an early age and parents are urged to get their children involved in oral hygiene from an early age. This is so they can learn to include teeth cleaning in their daily routine.
A good daily oral hygiene habit should include brushing teeth with toothpaste, flossing and mouthwash. The act of flossing goes a long way to eradicating traces of plaque and bacteria in those hard to reach mouth areas, while mouthwash will rinse away other remaining deposits.
For a thorough dental cleaning visit your dentist in Chiswick for a professional clean and polish – you really will see and feel the difference.
