Dental care is an important part of your overall health. Without proper dental care, you find that your mouth is full of painful cavities. In this video, you will learn some of the best practices that you can do to improve your dental care game.
Most people don’t know that what you eat has a significant impact on your dental health. You may have heard that sugar is bad for your teeth. However, did you know that breads, crackers, and cereals are also bad for your teeth? They are made up of fermentable carbohydrates. These fermentable carbohydrates break down into sugars which are then consumed by bacteria that live in your mouth. In turn, these bacteria produce acid which is what creates the cavities.
It is crucial to not only eat less sugars, but to rid your teeth of these sugars as well. Consider rinsing your mouth out with water after a meal. Further, consider brushing your teeth after a meal in addition to brushing twice a day. This can be hard to remember at first, but this will become routine once you start. Of course, you can’t be expected to brush after meals where you eat out or are visiting. However, it is a good practice where applicable.
