TOP 5 REASONS TO SAY 'YES' TO GOOD DENTAL HYGIENE:
1. Stop cavities. 2. Avoid tooth loss. 3. Enjoy fresher breath. 4. Experience better overall health. 5. Smile a smile that makes everyone smile.
We all know that good dental hygiene is key to preventing cavities, stopping tooth loss, freshening our breath, boosting our overall health, and brightening our smile, yet not all of us make that appointment for regular cleaning.
So perhaps we don’t all know these things?
Our mouths are home to approximately 300 different types of bacteria.The main culprit for poor tooth health is Streptococcus mutans, which converts sugar and other carbohydrates into the acids which eat away at your teeth. That’s kind of a big deal.
Over 100,000,000 micro-creatures who are swimming, feeding, reproducing, and depositing waste in your mouth on any given day.
So brush your teeth after every meal, floss daily, and schedule your next cleaning now. Food for thought: You can gift a healthy-mouth exam and cleaning it to someone who doesn’t have dental insurance.
