Here at Wilmington Dental Studio in Wilmington, We want all of our patients to have the best oral health possible. Unfortunately, many people today are undereducated or under-motivated when it comes to up keeping their oral hygiene. It can lead to serious dental complications such as gum disease and even worse. We want to help educate our patients so that they can improve the oral hygiene of themselves and also their children.
The oral hygiene means that you brush and floss your teeth every day and that you understand how to do so correctly. Your dentist will be more able to educate you if you do not already know so that you can achieve optimal oral health.
When brushing, you should spend at least two minutes brushing your teeth. After you are done, you should always thoroughly rinse your mouth out with water so that you do not ingest toothpaste which is not meant to be consumed. Then, it would help if you flossed your teeth. Little may you know, your dentist can quickly tell if you are not regularly flossing based on the health of your gums. If you floss regularly, you will not see any blood. However, infrequent flossing causes blood due to inflammation of the gums and the beginning of gum disease.
Good oral hygiene means more than just brushing and flossing regularly. It also means avoiding harmful Beverages and Foods. If you choose to consume sugary beverages, it is always best to rinse your mouth with water once you finish. It would help if you also were visiting your dentist for a regular cleaning and dental exam every six months.
Without proper oral hygiene or a regular dental visit, you may quickly develop cavities as well as gum disease. Many people do not fully understand that oral health is also closely linked with overall health, including heart health. You are at a higher risk of heart disease if you fail to care for your teeth properly. You’re also at an increased risk of various forms of cancer.
