You are probably aware that there are several steps you’ll have to take if you’re hoping to enjoy good oral health. Still, would you be surprised to hear that there are a number of factors you’ll need to consider to keep your pearly whites as healthy as you can?

For example, would you be interested in learning that a lack of saliva might lead to a number of problems? Unfortunately, a number of issues might actually cause dry mouth, including different medications as well as asthma. Dry mouth can also leave you more susceptible to cavities and gum disease which might also cause a number of more serious dental issues. If you think you have dry mouth, there are several steps you can take to protect your pearly whites. We suggest calling us if you’re interested in protecting your teeth and gums as well as you could.

In general, there are also foods you should stay away from. For example, sugary foods could also leave you more susceptible to cavities. Smoking might also affect your smile and cause bad breath. Naturally, setting up an appointment with us is also important, but have you heard that you should also try to watch for other problems at home? For instance, while our team could notice these issues you may not be able to find on your own, you might still struggle to notice red or swollen gums on your own.
