Do we want to remain healthy? Let’s start by mouth
Taking care of your mouth is the easiest way to keep your whole body healthy.
It is as simple as brushing your teeth at least twice a day, eating healthy, not smoking, or abusing alcohol and visiting the dentist periodically.
Cavities and gum disease (periodontal disease) can be prevented and prevention is saving money.
Having a healthy mouth is a good guarantee to avoid problems in general health. Oral problems are often forgotten, do not neglect your mouth!
The first thing that yes or yes we recommend to maintain oral health from a healthy mouth is a correct brushing, the important thing is to dedicate time and not forget any area!
Perform circular movements between the tooth and the gum without hurting it with a soft bristle brush and can be a small head for better access to all areas.
Do not forget the internal surfaces of the tooth, the areas of chewing and to be able to be brush the tongue for a better cleaning and elimination of bacteria.
Do I have to use dental floss or interdental brush?
Toothbrushes as a general rule do not reach all areas well and therefore the bacteria, especially those accumulated in the interdental spaces, are not eliminated correctly. This is why it is very important to pass dental floss once a day or use an interdental brush.
Ideally, each of us should use 110 meters of silk a year. Not using dental floss means leaving the
35% of the surfaces of the teeth without cleaning which increases a cardiovascular risk.
The plaque that is removed with dental floss contains more than 300 species of bacteria.
Ideally, flossing between meals and just before bedtime.
Using dental floss reduces the risk of caries, periodontal diseases (pyorrhea) and bad breath.

Is my diet important for oral health?
Eating well and healthy is not only important for oral health but also for your overall health. Eat healthy and balanced. Avoid overweight and obesity.
Fresh fruit and raw vegetables such as apple, carrot or celery, help remove plaque from teeth and freshen breath.
Antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin C, help protect the gums from inflammation and bacterial infections.
The folic acid existing in green leafy vegetables helps good oral health and adequate cell growth throughout the body.
