Here’s some tips from the article on what you need to know about your oral health, and how to keep your mouth and teeth clean and beautiful!

You probably don’t think about your teeth that much unless you drink something icy cold or that little postcard reminding you to schedule your next dental appointment shows up in the mail.

However, you should really give your pearly whites more attention.

After all, your teeth are one of the first things people see when you smile and greet them, and your oral health can have a major impact on the health of not just your mouth, but your entire body.

Mom was right! Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily. This keeps plaque at bay, improves breath and prevents stains. Plus, a study published in the British Medical Journal found that people who brushed twice a day were 30% less likely to develop heart disease compared to people who only brushed once. That’s because, according to health experts, gum disease can lead to inflammation and can damage your arteries.

If you play contact sports, consider having a custom-made mouth guard fitted to protect those pearly whites.

Visit your dentist twice a year to make sure everything is in tip-top shape!

Having healthy teeth isn’t just about looking great (although that’s a nice perk!). Good oral health is really about your body’s overall wellness. So brush right, brush often and take care of those teeth!
