As surprising it may sound, but only two simple habits of brushing and flossing can save you from cavities and many other dental problems like bad breath, loss of teeth e.t.c.
It's a scientifically proven fact that simple acts of brushing and flossing your teeth daily can prevent many of the dental diseases to progress and you can save thousands of rupees spent per year on dental treatment.
Importance Of Brushing : Brushing twice daily is important to remove plaque which are soft deposits that form the biofilm which harbour bacterial colonies that stick to the tooth surface. These deposits if not removed harden to form calculus, which in turn causes severe gum diseases like gingivitis, bone loss and tooth loss.
Cavities are formed when bacteria found in plaque acts upon fermentable sugar like glucose fructose and sucrose, resulting in acid release which damage structure of tooth over a period of time.
Importance Of Flossing : Flossing removes plaque and food debris in between two teeth thereby preventing interdental cavities.
So, keep on brushing and flossing for a healthy smile and a healthier you.
