Brushing your teeth will almost never be the most important thing you’ll do in any given day. But your oral hygiene is still important!
Here are five reasons why you’ll want to make sure you never miss a day of brushing and flossing.
The main germs responsible for bad breath grow on your teeth and tongue. If you brush those every day, then you’re more likely to have sweet breath that won’t push your friends away.
A reputation for neglecting your oral hygiene can precede you and make meeting new friends a challenge. You can may even have difficulty getting a job. Good grooming is key to being taken seriously.
Losing your teeth can make you look old long before your time. On the other hand, if you take good care of your teeth and gums they’ll stay with you for life.
Did you know that cavities can lead to life-threatening brain infections? How about the fact that having gum disease increases your risk for stroke and heart disease?
Good oral hygiene now can prevent periodontal disease as well as other diseases that can have a major impact on your overall health.
Poor oral hygiene will lead to complications such as abscesses, infections, loose and missing teeth, difficulty eating normal foods, and chronic pain.
Spare yourself all of this unnecessary discomfort and risks by asking your dentist for tips on improving your oral hygiene.
