Dental Hygiene is the health and condition
a person keeps their teeth and mouth in.
Why is Dental Hygiene important?
Dental Hygiene is important because you need your teeth and
gums to eat, drink and avoid terminal illnesses
like gum disease or even cancer.
This is a result of bad Dental Hygiene!
This is an informative video on how to properly brush your teeth
How often should you brush your teeth?
The NHS website states "brushing your teeth twice a day is
recommended as this will provide a good level of cleanliness
as well as not damaging the teeth themselves". Most people clean
their teeth in the morning and before bed, which are the most logical
times to clean your teeth.
How often should i go to the dentist?
It is recommended to go to the dentist twice a year (every 6 months)
as this will allow any damage or illnesses to be found before
something fatal happens.
what happens if I lose a tooth and am not covered by the NHS?
Losing a tooth is a nasty thing to happen, however when you're an adult
and it happens, it can be an expensive process to get a replacement
tooth made from a different material, and can also be a painful process.
This is another reason to make sure you take good care of your teeth
especially at an early age.
