...if patients carefully carry out effective oral hygiene routines, including visiting their dentist for regularly scheduled cleanings, they can expect fewer overall oral health issues, including cavities and periodontal problems.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2016
According to an article published May 12th on the Medical Daily, as a great many Americans know, tooth brushing plays a massive role in oral health and hygiene. The article points out that, as long as patients are brushing as they should – twice a day – then the bristles on their toothbrushes will become worn and frayed. Of course, these worn-out bristles won’t clean teeth and gum tissue as effectively, so the article suggests that people replace their toothbrushes every three or four months. An added benefit is that when patients throw away their retired toothbrushes, they’re also disposing of millions of bacteria, and potentially viruses and fungi that take up residence between the bristles. And, because these bacteria can spread from toothbrush to toothbrush, by regularly switching them out, people can also take comfort in the fact that they may be reducing the risk of cross-contamination, the article explains. Commenting on this article, San Fernando Valley-based Medical Center Dental Care notes that, when it comes to oral health, effective tooth brushing is one of the most important preventative care habits for patients and their families to maintain twice daily. The dental care clinic explains that it pays particular attention to instructing patients and their families on proper brushing as well as flossing. The clinic adds that, if patients carefully carry out effective oral hygiene routines, including visiting their dentist for regularly scheduled cleanings, they can expect fewer overall oral health issues, including cavities and periodontal problems.
What’s more, Medical Center Dental Care explains that it makes every effort to teach parents and their children the best ways to maintain their oral health. The center’s very own Dr. Magnolia Becker is a highly experienced pediatric dentist who has been working with younger patients for many years. The clinic explains that Dr. Becker is adept at ingraining the appropriate oral hygiene habits in youngsters that can help them maintain excellent oral health throughout their lives. Of course, the clinic adds, parents play a vital role in ensuring that their children are following through with their oral care hygiene routines; parents that place a high priority on oral health routines in their households may witness their children exhibiting similar enthusiasm for tooth brushing and flossing, the dental clinic explains.
