There are a number of ways that individuals can help to ensure they benefit both from a healthy body and a bright, healthy smile.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 14, 2017
A February 3 article on The Alternative Daily lists a number of impacts of poor dental health that would likely surprise most people. Alongside an increased risk of heart attacks and diabetes and diseases associated with aging, such as osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s, the article also mentions illnesses that can impact oral health negatively, such as acid reflux and eating disorders. Southern California dental clinic Smile Boutique Beverly Hills says that the article is another reminder of the very strong linkage between good dental health and overall health and good quality of life. The clinic adds that there are a number of ways that individuals can help to ensure they benefit both from a healthy body and a bright, healthy smile. These include:
Self-Care. Most individuals know they are supposed to brush their teeth at least twice daily, but not everyone does it and not everyone does it as well as they should, says Smile Boutique Beverly Hills. The general rule of thumb is that individuals should spend approximately two minutes brushing and attempt to reach the entire surface of all of their teeth. It’s also a good idea to brush the tongue for fresh breath and, when in doubt, consult their dentist for suggestions on the best ways to reduce or eliminate plaque, says Smile Boutique Beverly Hills. The clinic adds that, contrary to what many have heard, regular flossing also remains important.
Preventive Dental Treatment. Smile Boutique Beverly Hills points out that even the best self-care regimen can only do so much in order prevent tooth decay and periodontal problems. That’s why it’s essential to visit a dentist twice a year for teeth cleanings and regular examinations. The dental clinic notes that, even with regular brushing and flossing, dental plaque and other harmful material still build up in the mouth and need to be removed by a dental professional. The clinic adds that yearly examinations are also needed to prevent relatively minor problems, such as a new cavity, from becoming more serious issues that might require more involved treatments, such as a root canal or, in the worst cases, extraction.
Cosmetic Treatment. While outstanding overall health is extremely important, Smile Boutique Beverly Hills suggests that most individuals also want the brightest and most attractive smile they can get. The clinic adds that patients interested in straighter, whiter, and more generally attractive teeth may very well wish to consult their dentist to find out about the ever-increasing range of cosmetic dental options that are now available.
