Dental health is an integral part of general health and an important factor in overall quality of life. Only a healthy oral cavity provides nutrition, speech and social contact without any difficulty.
Diseases of the mouth and teeth, caries (dental breakdown) and periodontopathy (diseases of the supporting apparatus of the tooth) are important for individual health, but also for the health of society as a whole and have public health significance.
Healthy teeth – Dental health
Using a toothbrush and toothpaste is the most common and common way because the brush removes all deposits from the teeth, gums and tongue, which contributes to the purity and freshness of the mouth.
It is necessary to wash your teeth and mouth at least twice a day, in the morning after getting up, before breakfast and the night before bed.
The dental health of each individual is taken care of by the dentists who monitor the condition of the patients’ mouths during regular six-month examinations.
Also, give appropriate advice and apply appropriate therapeutic methods, all with the aim of maintaining good dental health.
Among the problems and diseases they can discover with a thorough examination are:
- Vitamin deficiencies
- Acid reflux
- Tooth grinding
- Heart problems
- Mental health issues
- Oral cancers
Infections that start in your mouth can lead to even worse health concerns. For example, gingivitis is a common inflammation of the gums.
It can develop into periodontitis, a much more serious infection that can cause tooth loss.
Infections that start in your mouth have even been linked to such complications and disease as:
- Premature births
- Low birth babies
- Respiratory problems
- Coronary artery disease
Good dental hygiene, healthy teeth – healthy body
Foods of different contents and in different quantities are introduced into the body in the daily diet.
For the dental hygiene and health of the teeth, but also for the general health, care should be taken to maximize the intake of raw, unprocessed foods, such as fruits and vegetables.
It is very important that no food be taken in the evening before going to bed and after brushing your teeth as the night is the period when the caries are the best conditions in the mouth.
