Oral Hygiene

Why is Dental Hygiene Important?

Dental hygiene is important to maintain the health of your gums, teeth, tissues and even your throat. Without good dental hygiene, you could be putting yourself at risk of serious health conditions. Poor oral hygiene causes:

  • Bad Breath (halitosis)
  • Visible Build-Up of Plaque and Hard Tartar
  • Stained Teeth
  • Bleeding Gums
  • Receding Gums
  • Tooth Sensitivity
  • Tooth Decay
  • Loose Teeth and Even Tooth Loss
  • Dental Abscesses

When you suffer from any of these symptoms, your self-esteem can be affected and you may not want to socialise with friends because you are too self-conscious about your smile. Daily tasks such as eating or speaking can also become more of an issue because of poor dental hygiene.

Poor Dental Hygiene and Gum Disease

Many people assume that their oral hygiene is fine, but this is not always the case and if you ignore it, you may suffer from various health issues in the future. Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease or periodontitis) is one of the most common health issues associated with poor dental hygiene. Bacteria associated with periodontitis can enter the bloodstream via bleeding gums and has been linked to the following conditions:

  • Heart Disease
  • Strokes
  • Generalised Inflammation
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Premature Births
