Dr. Mistry’s Oral Hygiene Benefits & Tip

It’s Spring Cleaning  Time … even for your TEETH !

Visiting your dentist regularly has many health benefits overall.

Regular dental visits are important because they help keep your teeth and gums stay healthy. Residue on teeth after eating and drinking all day can cause plaque and tartar to buildup and not only cause tooth decay, but can erode the mouths gum tissues. When this happens, you end up getting an infection called gingivitis.  As gingivitis progresses, the tissue that attaches gums to teeth can break down and cause a more serious condition called periodontitis which can cause eventual tooth loss.  A dental professional can offer treatment to correct such gum disease.  

One way to minimize food residue on your teeth and the associated plaque build up is to lubricate you teeth with drinking water.  Gently swish the water between your teeth paying particular attention to direct the flow of water to the front and back teeth–both tops and bottoms before and after you eat.  

Don’t wait for sudden unexpected  tooth pain before seeing a dentist … go for a tune up of your mouth  this SPRING to prevent Tooth trouble!
