One of the most common global diseases is tooth decay, which is usually caused by the lack of proper oral hygiene or treatment of cavities and gum infections.
These infections may lead to serious oral problems such as bad breath, dry mouth, cancer, cold sores, TMD (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction), and tooth decay which can all be prevented by putting in some extra effort to make sure the mouth is properly cared for.
Here are a few ways to improve your and your family’s oral hygiene
Use Fluoride Toothpaste
Brush at least twice a day (morning and night) with fluoride toothpaste to prevent inflammation of the gum (Gingivitis) and dental plaques caused by sticky films on the teeth. The symptoms of gingivitis include swollen gum, dark red gum, bleeding gum after brushing, bad breath, receding gum and tender gum.
Mouthwash can get to places and debris your normal brushing can’t reach. They also have anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that kill and wash off bacteria in the mouth.
Consult a Dentist
Having a discussion with your dentist can help you know more about your dental needs. You should make it a habit to have regular dental checkups – at least twice a year.
Check Your Mouth Regularly
Get a bathroom mirror and look for any cracks, growth, stains or bruising. If you notice any of this, contact your dentist immediately for an expert opinion on the next line of action.
Using these methods is painless and cost-effective. So if you’re in need of oral care products, just click here and we’ll bring them straight to you.
