    Why Is Dental Hygiene Important?

    Hygiene is very important to prevent oral diseases from occurring. Medgaus Dental Care provide you with a nice clean smile when you come in, but we also check your oral cavity for any signs of upcoming problems. Diabetes is one of the problems that can occur from bad dental hygiene. Proper hygiene is not only important for your oral health but also your overall health in general. Research has demonstrated a relationship between gum disease and stroke and other health problems. Another study showed that over 90 percent of all full body diseases begin from the oral cavity. Other diseases that manifest from the oral cavity include diabetes, leukemia, and pancreatic cancer. We care about your smile and overall health, and as a Monroeville and Pittsburgh dental office we will do everything possible to help you.

This will keep you up to date with oral cleanings and help you prevent other oral problems. You should also brush after you eat to prevent food from lingering in your mouth and causing bad breath. You should also floss twice a day to keep your gums clean and prevent diseases such as gingivitis. Also eating the right foods is very important. It is important to ingest a lot of vitamins A and C to prevent oral complications. Avoid smoking or using any form of tobacco which is known to cause oral cancer.
