Do you ever wonder why you brush, floss, rinse and attend your checkups regularly? If so, our dentist, Dr. A. Alessio Conte, is more than happy to tell you why. Oral hygiene is very important for the teeth, gums, smile and entire oral health. To help you understand why he is happy to list the reasons. Those reasons are:

-Oral hygiene keeps gum disease at bay. This is because it removes the dangerous plaque from the teeth and gumline on a regular basis, which is vital. Plaque is the substance that creates gum disease, and it needs to be removed throughout the day.

-Oral hygiene helps you prevent cavities. Tooth decay is also a serious dental issue that is caused by cavity-promoting plaque and bacteria in the mouth. If those substances aren’t removed by your oral hygiene routine, they can attack the teeth, wear down the outer shell, and form small holes in the surfaces.

-Oral hygiene can help you keep your natural teeth as you get older. This is because it helps you have a strong and healthy smile. When you have a strong and healthy smile, you won’t usually lose teeth as you grow older.
