Dental care - looking after your teeth
Good oral hygiene is essential, not just for your teeth, but also for your general health. As well as cleaning teeth and gums correctly, it is vital you visit your dentist regularly.
Dental care involves looking after your teeth and gums and ensuring they remain in good condition. However, simply brushing is not always enough and a Dentist SW1 residents can contact will be happy to provide help and advice.
Unless removed, undigested food can become lodged between the teeth. To ensure that such particles are cleaned away, flossing is a valuable addition to normal brushing.
Flossing also has a number other benefits; for instance, it helps prevent the build up of plaque and tartar, which are the major causes of many tooth and gum disorders, particularly periodontal disease and gingivitis. Flossing also helps prevent halitosis, which is often caused by decomposing food particles.
Improper dental care can lead to later general medical problems. For instance, it is now known that plaque can get into the blood stream, which can put you at risk of developing heart disease.
Using a dental mouthwash or rinse will remove any bacteria missed by brushing and flossing. While there are a variety of different types available on the market, in general, they all act as antiseptics.
