Dental Myth #1: “Dental health doesn’t affect my overall health”
Fact: The mouth is an integral part of your body and is important to your overall health and well-being ,so you can chew your food; communicate and socialise; and of course, smile :-)
Studies continue to link inflammation in the mouth, especially gum disease, with other inflammatory conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease. Taking good care of your mouth helps to keep your body healthy.
Dental Myth #2: “Baby teeth are not important, they just fall out”
Fact: Baby teeth play a significant role in the health and development of our kids. Baby teeth are important for preserving space in the jaw for the permanent adult teeth and they actually guide them into their correct positions. Establishing healthy dental habits from an early age, including regular dental exams which can start as soon as teeth appear, can set a child up for a lifetime of good oral health.
Dental Myth #3: “If I’m not in pain, I don’t need to see the dentist”
It’s National Smile Month Yay!!!! Why so happy?
Because it is that time of year when the whole nation focuses on their smile and especially how to look after it.
This year, there are 3 key messages being focused on. They are:
Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste.
Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
Visit the dentist regularly, as often as they recommend
Are you a soda drinker? Have you ever wondered what the effect of drinking soda has on your teeth? Check out the infographic below and see just how much of an effect that soda has on those pearly whites.
However reality means sometimes you might indulge and if so remember…
Always use a straw
DON’T brush straight after, it’s death to the enamel as it’s most vulnerable at this time
Chew some sugar free gum straight after. It will help you produce more saliva to get your mouth back in neutral zen mode
