Good oral health improves chewing, speaking abilities, and dental hygiene. Conversely, poor oral health can result in tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral hygiene issues. People should exercise good dental habits and eat healthy nutrition for their teeth and gums. This video debunks some common teeth myths and advises how people should maintain oral health.
Some common myths are that diet sodas don’t cause cavities, cavities cant be reversed, and braces are only for crooked teeth.
Some even say that braces aren’t for older people and that when people grow old, they will lose all their teeth. According to dentists, cavities can be reversed, and diet sodas can cause cavities. Moreover, those with damaged teeth can get braces irrespective of age, and the teeth loss mostly depends on how well one cares for them.
In addition, dentists recommend various habits for oral hygiene. They advise patients to balance their sugary and acidic food intake with plenty of water and a diet rich in vegetables and fruits. They also recommend maintaining a good dental hygiene routine like flossing, brushing, and rinsing with mouthwash. Moreover, patients should also visit dental clinics for occasional dental checkups every year.
