Why Oral Hygiene is Important
Maintaining good oral hygiene is important for several reasons. First, it helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria in your mouth that produce acid. This acid attacks your tooth enamel, causing cavities. Gum disease is an infection of the gums that can eventually lead to tooth loss.
Second, oral hygiene prevents bad breath. If you don’t brush and floss regularly, food particles and bacteria can build up in your mouth, causing an unpleasant odor.
Third, good oral hygiene is important for overall health. Studies have shown that there is a link between oral health and general health. For example, gum disease has been linked to heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
