Did you know that oral health keeps your teeth and gums healthy but can also help protect your overall health? A clean mouth can prevent gum disease and tooth decay but can also improve your defense against heart disease and other common infections of the sinus, ears and throat. Take these simple steps to stay as healthy as possible.
When shopping, choose a soft-bristled toothbrush with a compact head. This will help avoid damage to the teeth and gums and help you clean hard to reach places. Purchase a new toothbrush every three months or whenever you have a cold or sickness.
Don’t Skip the Floss
Flossing is one of the most important steps in preventing cavities and gum disease – but is also one of the most frequently skipped steps. Floss after every meal.
