You Should Do Teeth Brushing Everyday

If you've ever asked yourself the question, "Is it really necessary to brush my teeth every day?" the answer is a resounding yes. Not brushing your teeth on a regular basis can lead to a wide variety of health related issues... some of them quite severe.

Dentists recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day, once after you eat breakfast and once before you go to bed. You should also brush after you eat sweets and sticky foods such as dates or raisins, whenever possible.

In the event you can't brush with an actual toothbrush and ultrasonic scaler  every day, for instance in an emergency situation, using just your finger and rinsing your mouth out with water is better than nothing.

Plaque build-up leads to tooth decay and gum disease. This clear bacterium multiplies quickly when dental care goes by the wayside. To make matters worse (and as surprising as it may seem), approximately 300 different varieties of bacteria reside in the mouth... 20 of which are thought to contribute to come disease.

Cavities are not only painful, they typically cause teeth to either fall out or break off. When this happens it makes it very difficult to eat anything except softer foods. Many times, when this happens, the only solution is getting fitted for dentures or a partial plate.
While we think brushing and flossing teeth with dental instruments is about cleaning and polishing your smile, there are some serious issues that can happen in your mouth under the tartar, plaque and bacteria. Since it can be detrimental to your health, it is of the utmost importance you take care of protecting your gums along with your teeth.

If you are unable to control gum disease then treatments include plaque removal in the dentist office as well as prescription mouth rinses to kill bacteria. If the disease has progressed you may need a more invasive surgery.

Improved Overall Health

As more and more science comes in we are finding that oral health is linked to some pretty devastating diseases. Lack of good oral health practices can be linked to cardiovascular disease (heart disease), diabetes, osteoporosis, and premature or low birth weight babies.

A healthy bright smile says more about you than you might think. However, a healthy mouth that has been taken care of might be the difference between good overall health and some pretty nasty issues including bacteria from your mouth getting into your bloodstream.

Now you know that brushing your teeth twice a day can increase the odds in your favor that you will have good oral health including bright clean teeth and healthy pink gums. Check with your dentist and see if he or she agrees that brushing your teeth twice a day will give you a leg up on your health. Combine what you do at home with regular dental visits and cleanings and you are on your way to a happy and healthy lifestyle.
