Dental Maintenance is not Expensive but Neglect is
Most of the dental problems arise due to the lack of proper dental care and remain unnoticed. They suddenly undergo rapid growth without us being aware of it. A small cavity is a source to a large scale decay. A small cavity might not hurt but as it starts to spread and affect the sensitive inner layers of the teeth, the pain becomes unbearable. Self-medication is never an option here. And by this time, there is no more way other than a root canal or an extraction which is not very pocket-friendly.
The perils of Dental issues can be overcome by following few steps which would not cost them much and help maintain Oral Health.
- Regular Brushing: Brushing your teeth twice a day with a good quality bristled toothbrush and toothpaste with high calcium concentration ensures proper cleansing of the mouth.
- Flossing: Dental floss is very important for maintaining Oral health. It enables the cleansing of areas like between the teeth which are not easily accessible by a toothbrush. Cleansing of plaque becomes easier.
- Using Mouthwash: Mouthwash can be used in addition to brushing and flossing. It helps get rid of bad breath.
- Regular Dental Checkups: There are several dental issues that only a dentist can recognize. The initial stages of every issue are on a minuscule level and cannot be easily pinned down until it transgresses to a more serious level.
Regular dental checkups can help avoid this problem as any existing oral issue can be detected at the very beginning and immediate treatment can avoid serious problems because prevention is always better than cure
