A smile is completes your make-up personally, and attitude-wise, just as a clean set of teeth reflecting good dental care reveals the ultimate close-up smile and peak of confidence. From root to crown dental care is a widely researched subject and the focus is on to create awareness amongst the public.
The teeth are not present only as the functional grinders and cutters or the cosmetic smile-flashers; they are an important part of the human body, which require diligent care-taking. Good dental care means good oral hygiene and simple easy-to-follow practices without medical intervention can keep dental ailments at bay. As the saying goes “Prevention is better than cure” and proper dental care can take you a long way in keeping tooth-decays, bad breath, plaque, canker sores, gums-ailments and others of the line at the safest distance from your well-being.
Brushing your teeth in an angular way to regular flossing and the right choice of toothpastes, to the foods and drinks that can be harmful, and a diet that can strengthen your teeth, bad-breath oral hygiene and more, is what comes under dental care. A background study reveals the significance of dental care and also the routine you can set up (diet and health-wise) to ensure that you maintain good healthy teeth.
Poor lifestyle habits and lack of awareness about dental care leading to common dental problems will be discussed in the following section along with a preventive and a remedial plan. The beginning or the tell-tale symptoms of bad dental care is Plaque a layer of colourless deposit on your teeth which encourages the growth of micro-organisms (bacteria). The bacteria gradually wear out the tooth enamel causing cavities, bad breath, gum diseases and oral infections. Plaque can be removed through brushing, flossing or professional dental cleanings. Tooth decays or cavities, is a condition where the enamel wears out exposing the nerves of the tooth and causing sensitivity and tooth-ache. In the initial stages tooth decays can be coated with regular brushing with fluoride toothpastes, whereas in severe cases medical interventions is required. Gingivitis or swelling of gums is usually caused by bacteria harbouring in the plaque. Gingivitis can lead to premature falling of teeth and also be extremely painful. Periodontitis is a gum-infection caused by bacteria, and if left untreated can cause damage to the gum tissues and the tooth-bones. Treatment involves administering antibiotics under medical prescription. Tooth abscess is pus formed over a germ-struck tooth (decayed) usually caused due to gum infections, which can cause excruciating pain. And if not treated promptly can escalate to other layers of your mouth-region or your body.
As already discussed, healthy lifestyle and sound dental care practices can keep the dental-problem symptoms at bay, before even it erupts into a disease. It steps right in into your daily habits from the angle of brushing your teeth to keeping your breath fresh by using oral fluoride mouthwash for gargling or rinsing your mouth before your good-night sleep. That much desired starry-sparkly smile takes roots in healthy teeth.
