Achieve A Healthy Smile at Any Age

Achieve A Healthy Smile at Any Age

Having a healthy mouth can be a huge asset to you. Your teeth play such an important role. They help you chew and digest food, they help you speak clearly and they also impact the shape of your face.

A smile also has other day-to-day benefits. It can boost your confidence, as well as influence your social, vocational and relational life.

It then makes good sense to give your oral health the best care possible. Your teeth should always be a reason to smile.

Having good oral health has wonderful life-changing benefits. Some of these include;

Keeping healthy teeth for life

By brushing your teeth twice daily, maintaining a low-in-sugar diet and regular visits to our dental professional, we can help reduce the risk of dental decay, gum diseases and difficulty in chewing or biting in children. 

Having a healthy baby

Did you know that pregnant women with healthy gums may be around three times less likely to have a baby that is premature, reducing the risk of having a low birth weight? Research says there is a one-in-four chance that a pregnant woman with gum disease could give birth before 35 weeks. This is because gum disease raises the levels of the chemicals that induce early labour.

Maintaining your appearance

Keeping your teeth clean and healthy can help us steer clear of bad breath (halitosis). Bad breath is very common and is often caused by a buildup of plaque This is an undesirable situation that can be treated at our Clinics.

It is also important to take note of tooth staining which is usually not harmful but tends to have some impact on overall wellness. 

In most cases, with regular cleaning, we should be able to prevent surface staining while more stubborn stains may need to be tackled by a dental professional.

When it comes to your oral hygiene, your age doesn’t matter. The key factor is scheduling regular check-ups and maintaining a healthy routine. A healthy smile can truly transform your visual appearance, your mindset, as well as improving the health of not only your mouth but your body too.

Now that you know this, you should be booking your Dental appointment today.
