We’re told every day as kids to make sure we brush our teeth first thing in the morning and before bed. As we grow, we are also encouraged to floss after each meal, but many people neglect to do either of these things on a frequent basis. While you might think it’s okay to brush once a day and floss once in a while, that’s really not the case. Taking care of your teeth isn’t just an aesthetic thing, it’s also essential for your health.
Many people don’t know that tooth decay can not only lead to cavities and tooth loss; it is also linked to heart disease. Taking care of your smile doesn’t just save your teeth, it can also save your life.
We see people every day who have neglected their dental hygiene routine and now need dental implants because their teeth had decayed to a point beyond saving. While dental implants do resemble your real teeth and are durable, the pain and hassle associated with loosing your teeth is not pleasant. It can all simply be avoided by practicing good, basic dental hygiene in the first place.
