It's one of the first things we learn from our parents. They teach us how to walk, how to use a spoon, and they teach us how to brush our teeth. It's true that when we're young, our primary motivation in tooth brushing may be the color of our toothbrush or the flavor of our toothpaste. As we grow up, though, we understand just how valuable a lesson our parents taught us.
The Benefits of Good Oral Hygiene
A fresh minty feeling in our mouth and smooth, clean feeling teeth are just one benefit of daily brushing and flossing. Cavities may be kept at bay from these healthy habits but let's face it, most of us don't wake up every morning thinking, "Boy, I sure hope today's not the day I get a cavity!" So, why do we brush and floss? The fact is, one of the first things you likely do in the morning, and again before you go to bed, has an impact on your entire day!
Did you know that when you keep plaque at bay by regular brushing and flossing, you reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes? Regularly polishing your teeth with gentle brushing also keeps your teeth whiter! Especially if you go the extra mile and can brush after meals, staining foods and drinks won't have the chance to do their damage! It's clear to see, oral hygiene is an integral part of protecting your smile and your overall health.
