Why Is Prevention So Important?
Oral Health for Overall Health
Proper oral hygiene does not only prevent cavities and periodontal disease but also affects our overall health and well-being. Did you know that problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body?
At Bright Value Dental, we educate all of our patients – kids and adults – on the best techniques for maintaining good oral hygiene. Maintaining proper oral health means knowing how to best take care of your teeth. Brushing, flossing, and scheduling dental checkups every six months is vital to oral health. Dr. Yu cares greatly about preventing dental problems in our Houston dental patients. Prevention ensures that the chances of cavities, gum disease, and receiving intensive dental procedures are decreased dramatically.
Methods for Cavity Prevention
- Brushing: It is highly recommended that patients brush their teeth twice per day. This helps remove plaque buildup.
- Flossing: Flossing daily is imperative to maintaining strong teeth and healthy gums by preventing gum disease.
- Checkups: Dental check-ups should be scheduled every six months to thoroughly clean the teeth and mouth.
