10 reasons to brush your teeth

The London dentist says oral health is more than just healthy teeth. Your mouth reflects your general health and well-being.These are the 10 most powerful reasons you should brush your teeth:

1. Save money

Prevention is cheaper than cure. Regular daily care of your teeth and gums will prevent problems in the future and leave you with lower dental bills.

2. Fresh Breath

Your mouth will start to smell if you do not clean it regularly. You take the trash waste out every night, clean your mouth out at least once per day.

3. Stay kissable

Who wants to kiss someone with food between their teeth or bad breath? Brushing is the cheapest and most effective way to remove food & bacteria.

4. Prevent gum disease

Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums and the first stage of gum disease) is caused by the plaque build-up around your teeth, leading to swollen gums and teeth that bleed when you brush them. Plaque is an accumulation of food and bacteria which appears in everyone’s mouth.

5. Reduce your chance of a heart attack or stroke

Bacteria from your mouth can make its way into your bloodstream and increase you chance of a heart attack or stroke.

6. Prevent or minimise Diabetes

Any gum disease can make it harder to control your blood glucose. The relationship between serious gum disease and diabetes is two-way. Not only are people with diabetes more susceptible to serious gum disease, but serious gum disease may have the potential to affect blood glucose control and contribute to the progression of diabetes.

7. Have a healthy baby

Gum disease has been shown to increase the chance of premature birth and low birth weight. It can also be one of the many causes of delayed conception and impotence. So get your mouth and gums healthy first.

8. Prevent Dementia

Poor oral health increases your risk of developing dementia by a third.

9. Toothpaste

on your brush is the best way to apply fluoride and other desensitizers. Fluoride in toothpastes becomes part of a tooth's surface, protecting the enamel from the acid released by plaque.

10. Remove stains

There are mild abrasives in toothpaste that remove debris and surface stains. Examples include calcium carbonate, dehydrated silica gels, hydrated aluminium oxides, magnesium carbonate, phosphate salts and silicates.That 2 minutes brush, twice a day can literately save your life. The Dental and Hygiene team at Bow Lane can show you the most effective way to brush, give us a call.
