Do you want a top-notch oral health and smile? If so, you need to prevent oral diseases. This is because oral diseases can destroy your teeth and gums and severely alter your oral health. Some oral diseases are gum disease, oral cancer, tooth decay and more. Our dentist, Dr. Tim Garofolo, is happy to help you prevent these diseases by giving you the tips you need, which are:
-Keep up on oral hygiene: This means you need to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your teeth once a day, rinse your mouth with antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash daily, and visit your dentist every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. These things can help you remove the harmful substances from your teeth and gums that cause oral diseases.
-Watch what you eat: Eating tooth-healthy foods can help you get the nutrients you need to prevent gum disease. So, do your best to eat foods like dairy products, fruits, vegetables and protein and do your best to avoid sugary, acidic and high-carbohydrate foods.
-Avoid tobacco products: Tobacco is very dangerous for the smile, especially because it attacks the teeth and gums, promotes cavities and gum disease, increases your risk of oral cancer and even affects your entire body. It’s best to avoid any product that contains tobacco.
