The health of your teeth and gums is important for more reasons that just ease of eating. If your gums become infected with certain diseases, it can lead to tooth loss, but more importantly recent studies show that the infection can adversely affect the heart. Gum disease usually starts with the teeth not being properly brushed and flossed.
Yes, back to the tried and true brush and floss your teeth twice a day for care instructions. This removes any trapped debris from the food that has been eaten during the day to where it cannot decay and in the process help bacteria to grow.
On top of this daily care, you need to visit the dentist at least one to two times a year. The dentist can catch any problems in your mouth before they become too serious. He will even x-ray your teeth to see if you have any cavities. His hygienist will clean your teeth as part of the visit prior to the x-rays being taken.
These are just some of the things it takes to have good dental health. You will not regret having healthy teeth and gums. For more information on this topic, check out the links listed below.
