Promote Family Oral Health Habits


I quite remember that I didn't smile a lot in school because my teeth were in poor state that as soon as I had my budget, I met an orthodontist and had my teeth cleaned, filled - up and braced. The regular visit to the dentist cost me a fortune but I quite believe that oral health means better health.


So, I am scheduled to have my lower braces removed, and just keep the retainer for good. As I waited for my appointment, I can't help notice the following GOLDEN RULES OF ORAL HEALTH:

  1. BRUSH YOUR TEETH EVERY AFTER MEAL;
  2. TAKE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES;
  3. REFRAIN FROM SWEET AND STICKY GOODIES;
  4. BRUSH, FLOSS AND MOUTH WASH REGULARLY;
  5. VISIT THE DENTIST REGULARLY AT LEAST EVERY 6 MONTHS.

When one has good oral habits, other health problems like heart disease can be remedied. Thus, we have to pay attention to our oral hygiene because it may mean lowering our health risks to major health disorders.
