Why Dental Hygiene Is Important

When it comes to maintaining personal health, dental care is one of the most important components to consider. Maintaining dental hygiene can have serious effects for your health, and reiterates why it is important to do so. At Braselton Smile Studio in Braselton, GA, we offer expert dental services as we understand that the key to having a healthy mouth is maintaining proper oral hygiene. In this blog, we’re going to explore what to do and why it’s important to have proper dental hygiene.  

Why Do We Need To Brush?

It may sound like a broken record at times when you visit a dentist or dental hygienist at Braselton Smile Studio, but brushing your teeth twice a day is extremely imperative to maintaining proper dental health. Brushing your teeth ensures that plaque build-up is properly removed, helping to proactively fight against gum disease, gingivitis, and tooth decay. Not brushing your teeth can also lead to gum infection and disease, which results in uncomfortable, swollen, and bleeding gums that can pose a threat to your overall personal health. Brushing your teeth twice a day, for two minutes each brush, can have a huge impact on maintaining good dental health.

Why Floss?

Flossing is another practice that is integral to maintaining strong and good oral health. It also happens to be one that is overlooked by the vast majority of our society. However, flossing is a great way to get the buildup of food and plaque that lodges in between your teeth. Mixed in with brushing, flossing your teeth can help limit the plaque build-up on your teeth and along the gum line. It assists in areas where a toothbrush can’t be reached. To maintain good flossing practices, it is best to integrate flossing at the same time as brushing your teeth. Flossing actually helps prevent serious diseases. Gingivitis is a common effect from tartar buildup in the gums, as well as factors that cause bad breath. Furthermore, flossing properly can help protect you from periodontal diseases. This can have a huge proactive effect on your long-term health.

Why Go to The Dentist?

Routine checkups are an important aspect of maintaining proper dental hygiene. Hygiene and continuing dental care are important because it gives your teeth the professional dental cleaning and care needed. We recommended a scheduled visit every 3-6 months (unless there is an urgent issue that needs immediate attention) because you get a proper cleaning from our dental hygienists, polishing, flossing, and a periodontal assessment. This routine visit to the dentist in Braselton, GA ensures that your oral health is in proper condition, as well as fix any issues that you may be having with your dental health.  

Sustaining A Strong Overall Health

Providing yourself with proper dental and health care can have a direct impact on your overall health. As noted before, without proper brushing or flossing, gum disease and periodontal disease can have an adverse effect on your overall health. Though it may seem like an inconvenience, maintaining proper dental health can be a powerful defense from other medical disorders and diseases

By brushing and flossing your teeth, as well as going to the dentist routinely, you can maintain and create strong overall health. Keeping up with your dental maintenance ensures you don’t have big problems down the road. Braselton Smile Studio is your trusted dental office who is dedicated to providing our patients with high-quality and expert dental services.
