The perfect smile is one which a person should aspire to. It is a social signal as well as a sign of good hygiene. There’s a reason Meridian residents like their dental clinic: they are happy with the service.
Like any other dental clinic, their aim is for their clients to have good dental health. Most times, some cosmetic and maybe oral operations are also in order.
Oral hygiene is not limited to great looking teeth. If a person has gum disease or weak gums, there is a great chance that the teeth will also decay, have infections or even fall off. There is also a correlation between diabetes and gum disease. Diabetes can lead to lowered body resistance to disease, and then to possible gum infection.
In turn, gum disease might help worsen diabetes because the body cannot adequately keep the proper sugar levels. This cycle of dependence can be stopped by keeping gums healthy. Brushing at least twice a day after meals, proper flossing and the use of antiseptic mouthwash can help keep gums healthy.
No Cavities and Tooth Decay
It is ironic that the fear of dentists stems from tooth decay. A person’s fear of the dentist usually starts from childhood with the anaesthetic injection before pulling the teeth. This is usually carried on to adulthood and leads to infrequent visits to the doctor.
Tooth decay can be prevented not only by regular brushing but also by regular visits to the dentist. Doing so, the dentist can detect dental problems before they worsen.
Tooth decay occurs because food particles stay in the mouth or between teeth. Due to this, plaque forms on the teeth and gums. Plaque itself is one symptom of tooth decay, and it can also be one cause of it. Bacteria reside in plaque and feeds on the food particles which remain in the mouth. The simple act of regular brushing can help clean bacteria and plaque.
Keeping good dental health means regular work to clean the mouth, tooth and gums. Otherwise, tooth decay can be a painful experience.
