Dental Health

What is dental health? Who has dental health? How can you promote good dental health for yourself and your family? Well, there are a few things you can do, and they're relatively simple in comparison to the hours and money you could spend at a dental office. First, everybody must brush their teeth after every meal. That will greatly reduce the amount of bacteria in mouths, which will reduce the possibility of cavities and tooth decay. Second, everybody must floss at least once a day if not twice a day. For the same reason as brushing, plus it will help keep your gums healthy. Third, mouthwash is good to use, though not absolutely critical. Fourth, the six months check-up that dentists recommend? It's not a scam to get you to part with your money. Your teeth need to have a good deep cleaning on a regular basis in order to stay healthy. Plus, it is much easier to catch a small cavity and fill than it is to give a person a root canal. Easier on your body and your pocket book!

Following these simple steps will lead to good or improved dental health. They are not expensive or terribly time consuming. When you think about how difficult it was for people to keep their teeth healthy even fifty years ago, you realize how lucky we are to be living in a day and age when good toothpaste is only a few books a tube, and all things considered, dentists are affordable and humane.
