Good dental hygiene helps to keep your mouth healthy and provide you with a whiter, brighter smile.
In addition to practising good hygiene at home, getting regular professional cleaning will help minimise bacteria build-ups and other problems that can adversely affect your teeth.
How does poor dental hygiene affect my health?
Poor dental hygiene doesn’t just affect the health of your mouth. Studies have linked mouth bacteria build-ups and untreated tooth problems to heart disease, diabetes, mouth cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease.
What else can I do to keep my mouth healthy?
In addition to brushing and flossing at least twice a day, you can keep your mouth healthy by:
- Not smoking or using tobacco products.
- Not consuming excessive amounts of sugary foods.
- Not consuming energy drinks, carbonated drinks, or other drinks high in sugar.
- Getting your teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year.
- For children, getting topical fluoride treatments.
- Regular visits to see the dentist.
