Good dental health doesn’t start at the dentist office. It actually starts with you.
As we covered previously, in order to maintain a trouble free mouth, brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste at least two times per day. Floss every day. Limit sugary drinks and snacks.  Make sure you treat periodontal disease seriously. Ignorance might cause you to lose your tooth. You may prevent dental problems with good dental care as well as oral hygiene. You can’t deny the fact that gum disease does affect your looks and your ability to chew your food. But don’t overlook the fact that it can also aggravate other health problems and compromise your overall health.
Never disregard signs of dental problems such as swelling, toothache and pain around the sore, gum or inflamed gums, dark spots or loose teeth on teeth that are most likely to signify decay. You need to understand that failure to look after teeth is dangerous to your health. Chronic and prolonged decay can cause serious damage to bodily organs like your heart and kidneys if not treated. In essence, you are what you eat in terms of overall physical health and this applies to your teeth as much as any other part of your physical being.  And there is the very real danger of death.  If an abscess isn’t treated it can cause death in some cases.
