Oral Hygiene Recommendations From Dentist Mandeville

Dr. Grand emphasizes the importance of maintaining oral hygiene because bacteria and plaque are the main cause of oral diseases and the formation of calculus. Every individual should make a commitment to spend just five minutes a day for proper teeth care. Proper oral hygiene and care guarantee a fresh feeling in the mouth. The decay of food particles and bacteria cause a bad smell, which is also called halitosis. Because of this, brushing, flossing and mouth rinsing eliminates the accumulation of plaque and remove the unpleasant taste and odor in the mouth.

Brushing teeth on a regular basis is essential. Nowadays there is a wide range of dentistry materials that are available for tooth care. One of the most important materials is the types of toothpaste that are available for purchase. However, other procedures are necessary to ensure proper care of teeth. Brushing with toothpaste generally cleans only the tops, front, and back of teeth. Brushing does not clean the tooth surfaces between the teeth. This fact means that approximately 40 percent of teeth surfaces remain uncleaned. Because of this, it is important to use dental floss.

The main purpose of flossing is to mechanically remove plaque from between the teeth. Plaque consists of bacteria, food remains, and saliva. If plaque is not removed, bacteria proliferate and results in a sticky substance that forms daily on teeth and gums. Finally, this sticky substance can lead to teeth decay, the formation of calculus, gum inflammation and even loss of teeth.
