Oral Health and Hygiene

Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping your mouth clean and free from diseases. It’s advisable for oral hygiene to be carried out on a regular basis, and it includes brushing your teeth daily. Taking good care of your teeth is very important in preventing dental diseases.

Some of the most common types of dental diseases include tooth decay – cavities, dental caries – and gum diseases – gingivitis and periodontitis.

To avoid these dental diseases, you are advised to mind oral hygiene.

  1. Brush your teeth twice a day. Try inter-dental cleaning; this is cleaning between the teeth considering that a tooth brush can barely reach between the teeth.
  2. Eat healthy diet; avoid sugary things like sweets as create favorable-abode for bacterial attack.
  3. Avoid smoking as it leads to tooth decay and gum diseases.
