Keeping teeth clean is such an important part of dental hygiene. Keeping the mouth clean can stop dental issues developing. Teeth cleaning can help to combat problems such as tooth decay and gum disease, amongst other things. It is also good to maintain hygiene in the mouth to keep the breath fresh. Many people see the mouth as being separate to the rest of the body, however, this is not the case. Issues in the mouth can have a knock-on effect on the rest of the body. Issues with poor oral health have been linked to other health complaints, such as dementia, heart disease, and diabetes. The mouth’s environment is unique and therefore needs special attention to keep it clean and healthy.
Ensure that teeth are brushed regularly, at least twice a day. It is recommended in the morning and before bed. Dentists also advise brushing after food, however, this is not always possible. Using dental floss can help to keep teeth healthy by removing debris from in between. People may also want to consider investing in an electric toothbrush, as these can clean parts of the teeth that might be difficult to reach with a manual toothbrush. Also, people often see the importance of keeping their teeth clean but forget about the tongue. Do be sure to keep the tongue clean by gently running a toothbrush over the area to remove bacteria build up. This will also have a positive effect on the breath.
A dentist can offer dental hygiene appointments to check the cleanliness of the mouth. They will advise you on how to keep your mouth healthy, and may also give the teeth a quick clean. This is known as a scale and polish. This helps to remove plaque and tartar build up that can cause tooth decay and bad breath. A dentist may also recommend a patient see a dental hygienist. Hygienists have special tools to give the mouth a thorough clean. Teeth whitening may also be considered by patients.
