Importance of Oral Hygiene Routine

Posted by Dr. Alicia Abeyta DDS FAGD on Jun 13 2012, 01:50 AM

Oral hygiene refers to brushing and flossing your teeth regularly. It also involves maintaining a healthy diet. Proper oral hygiene can prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. Brushing and flossing your teeth regularly can also prevent gingivitis. This condition is a mild form of gum disease that causes inflammation of the gums.

Why is Oral care important?

While it’s easy to overlook the importance of daily oral care, keeping your mouth clean is vital for your overall health. There are bacteria that cause oral diseases, and these bacteria are also responsible for other serious illnesses, such as diabetes and heart disease. Brushing and flossing daily helps to remove plaque buildup, which occurs when bacteria build up on your teeth.
