It’s widely recognized that maintaining good oral health is important for overall well-being, and that poor oral health can contribute to other health issues. To keep your mouth and body healthy, it’s essential to learn how to care for your smile and prevent harmful bacteria from spreading to other parts of your body.

Brushing and flossing regularly are key components of good oral hygiene, as they help to control harmful bacteria and prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Adequate saliva production is also crucial for washing away food particles and neutralizing harmful acids created by oral bacteria, which can otherwise lead to disease.

Poor oral health has been linked to various conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, endocarditis, HIV/AIDS, osteoporosis, and pneumonia. To protect your oral health, it’s important to practice good daily oral hygiene, replace your toothbrush regularly, and schedule routine dental cleanings and exams.

If you have crooked teeth, straightening them can make a significant difference in your oral health. Straight teeth are easier to clean and can help prevent cavities and gum disease. At Dentique Dental, we offer both traditional braces and clear aligners to help our patients achieve straighter, healthier smiles.

Traditional braces consist of metal brackets, wires, and bands, which gradually and gently realign your teeth over time. If you prefer a more discreet option, clear aligners such as Invisalign® can also be effective in creating a straighter smile. These aligners are made of smooth, thin plastic and are nearly invisible during treatment.

Both traditional braces and clear aligners can help you achieve a straighter, healthier smile, and are excellent orthodontic options. If you’re considering orthodontic treatment, we invite you to call Dentique Dental and schedule a consultation with our experienced dentists to determine which option is right for you.
