You may think of dental hygiene as a chore that you have to do on a daily basis without remembering that this task provides you with significant benefits. Unfortunately, when you’re not focused on the advantages, it can be easy to lose sight of the importance of caring for your smile. As a result, you may become a little bit lax with daily care. Good news: We are ready to offer you some reminders regarding the not-so-wonderful problems you can often easily avoid by brushing and flossing every day.
#1: It Prevents Discoloration
Your dental hygiene can prevent discoloration. Even if you like to drink your red wine or your coffee, you can follow that up with a swish of water and then a brushing session. By keeping your smile clean and free of staining food particles (and plaque buildup), you can prevent a significant amount of staining from occurring.
#2: It Prevents Damage
One of the easiest to appreciate results of dental hygiene is the fact that it prevents damage. From cavities to inflamed gums all the way to tooth loss, you can avoid multiple types of damage by keeping your smile clean. As a result, you can keep your money in your pocket and your time to yourself, since you won’t be visiting us for restorative procedures!
#3: It Prevents Bad Breath
Believe it or not, it’s not always the pizza or the garlic you ate that’s causing your bad breath. Here’s how you know: Stop eating pungent foods and see if your breath smells fresh. No? Well, you might not be brushing and flossing well enough. Daily dental hygiene removes the food and the bad bacteria that are responsible for a malodorous mouth!
