Why dental hygiene is important
Dental hygiene should be maintained all the time and everywhere. It is crucial because your face is first contact point. When you smile, speak and eat your dental health is on display to all.
Good dental health and hygiene is important for your overall wellbeing and in particular for your mouth. It’s most important for fighting off dental issues like plaque, periodontal gum disease, and tooth decay.
What poor dental hygiene can do to your mouth?
Poor oral hygiene may contribute to facial and oral pain. This happens as a result of gum infections and can cause the loss of teeth. It can also cause problems to major organs due to infections spreading.
It can cause stained, cracked, yellow teeth and bad breath. The build-up of bacteria mixed with food particles results in plaque formation. The acid in plaque breaks your enamel, weakens it and results in cavities. If this plaque hardens, it forms tartar which looks awful and may develop into periodontal disease.
Preventive Oral Health Management
It is important to review your dental health. Overseas Dental Solutions recommends that whilst on holidays in Thailand, you consult our network of dentists. The dentists can detect problems in growth and development, poor hygiene, nutrition and jaws that are not correctly aligned. You are then able to make an educated choice to have additional dental treatment an affordable price abroad.
Brushing your teeth for a minimum of three minutes twice daily using fluoridated toothpaste is important.
Daily flossing will assist in removing plaque from hidden places.
You should not smoke or use smokeless tobacco because it increases your chance of oral cancer and gum disease.
Eat a healthy diet with all the necessary nutrients especially vitamins A and C.
