There are many reasons as to why we should look after our teeth; after all, poor oral hygiene can lead to bad breath, gum disease and even heart disease. If bacteria are left to grow on the teeth on a regular basis, then it can enter the bloodstream which causes problems with the immune system as fat cells attach themselves to the bacteria which over time may cause blood clots to form. This can put a person at risk of heart disease, heart attack and even a stroke, so it’s vitally important that teeth are well looked after in order to help to avoid other health issues.
Primary oral hygiene should include brushing the teeth thoroughly twice a day, plus regular flossing. This can help to remove excess bacteria in the mouth to prevent it from entering the bloodstream. Of course, eating a healthy diet and limiting the amount of sugar which is eaten can also help to keep our mouths in good condition.
Over time, teeth naturally start to yellow, though this process can be sped up by smoking or drinking excess tea, coffee or red wine. White teeth make us appear younger, as darker teeth are associated with age. More and more people are choosing to have their teeth whitened in order to make them look younger and also to give them more confidence. There are many different teeth whitening treatments on the market, but it’s always best to consult a professional specialist in order to make sure it is carried out safely and effectively.
Before undergoing any treatments for teeth whitening, make sure you ask the specialist questions such as how long it will take to notice a difference, how many sessions will be needed, the cost of the sessions, what the risks are and what will happen if you’re not happy with the results. Once you’re happy with your choice of teeth whitening clinic, you may find you can book your teeth whitening appointment in during your lunch hour.
