According to your dentist and the American Dental Association, you should brush your teeth at least two times a day. Brushing keeps your teeth, gums, and mouth clean and healthy by removing bacteria-causing plaque. It is also recommended that you use a soft bristle toothbrush and toothpaste that contains fluoride when you brush your teeth. You should spend at least a minute on the top teeth and a minute on the bottom teeth, and remember to brush your tongue – it will help keep your breath smelling fresh!
A cavity is a small hole that forms inside the tooth because of tooth decay. Cavities are formed when plaque buildup on the outside of the tooth combines with sugars and starches in the food you eat. This produces an acid that can eat away the enamel on your tooth. If a cavity is left untreated, it will eventually cause pain and can lead to more serious oral health problems including infections and abscesses. Cavities can be prevented by remembering to brush your teeth at least two times a day and floss between teeth at least once.
Dentistry is an area of health care devoted to maintaining the teeth, gums, and other hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity. While it is essential for complete oral health, dentistry can also have an impact on the health of your entire body. Today, dentists provide a wide range of care that contributes enormously to the quality of their patients’ day-to-day lives by preventing tooth decay, periodontal disease, malocclusion, and oral-facial pain. These and other oral disorders can cause significant discomfort, improper chewing or digestion, dry mouth, abnormal speech, and altered appearances. Dentists are also instrumental in early detection of oral cancer and systemic conditions of the body that manifest themselves in the mouth, and they are at the forefront of a range of new developments in cosmetic and aesthetic practices.
