You’ll never regret the time and effort you put into maintaining healthy teeth. Your beautiful smile will constantly remind you of the benefits of cultivating good oral care habits. Proper dental care includes routine checkups and cleanings by Dr. Karen Ho from Dentistry on Parkdale, Hamilton, Ontario, to keep your teeth in tip-top shape year after year.
Dental problems are often the result of poor oral care. When you neglect to brush or floss your teeth, you’re more prone to developing cavities or oral infections that can lead to gum disease. Advanced gum disease is a significant cause of tooth loss.
Dental problems like decay and periodontal disease affect more than just your oral health. If bacteria from oral infections enter your bloodstream, it can impact your overall health, causing heart, liver, and kidney problems. Good oral care prevents dental issues that can impair your oral and overall health.
Good oral hygiene promotes healthy teeth and gums and a whiter, brighter smile. Regular brushing and routine dental cleanings help eliminate plaque, tartar, and surface stains on your teeth that cause them to appear dull and yellow.
