Did you know dental health has a huge impact on your overall physical health?
It can improve not only things like your self esteem and confidence but also can give key clues into your physical health and wellbeing.
Practicing good oral hygiene is key to a healthy mouth. Brushing your teeth thoroughly twice a day and regular dental check ups are essential. The American Dental Association makes these basic home care recommendations:
- Brush teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
- Clean between teeth daily
- Eat a healthy diet that limits sugary beverages and snacks
- See a dentist regularly for prevention and treatment of oral disease
Other recommendations to take on board from the American Dental Association include:
- Don't carry out any do-it-yourself dental treatment
- Recommend that patients drink fluoridated water
- Quit smoking
- Avoid oral piercings
Regular check ups can work as a preventative measure against any issues that may arise as well as diagnosing any issues that may already be present. Check out the four main reasons to have a check up with South Hill Dental here, /four-reasons-to-get-a-dental-check-up-at-south-hill-dental
