Oral Hygiene- Why Perfect Oral Hygiene Is So Important

Dear Readers,

When the patient comes to my dental office I assess the degree of hygiene by checking if any surface of the tooth is clean and the situation is the same in the front and back of the mouth.

I have to admit that for so many years I had several patients who really knew how to brush their teeth properly, to observe the required brushing time and not to damage their teeth and gums.

The sad truth is that most people do not know how to brush their teeth correctly.  I have always said that not good oral hygiene but the perfect oral hygiene is key to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, as well as the health of surrounding tissues in the mouth and, of course, good overall health and a beautiful smile.

Please look at my post- Preventive Dentistry- The Priceless Way

Therefore, I always explain a lot about oral hygiene and give instructions on how patients can improve their dental health and to preserve the results after professional cleaning. 

My goal is to show the patient the existing problems in his mouth and to do my best to convince him not to repeat or deepen them. The patient is required to make appointments for regular check-ups. 

I am very glad when I see the patient at regular reviews and I find that the problems have disappeared and the patients themselves have become more attentive and interested in maintaining a perfect oral hygiene. 

Regular reviews allow me to compare patients' dental status as well as the opportunity to recommend new tools and medications that have been announced in the meantime and will be beneficial to their health.

I always ask my patients the following question: 

When you forget to brush your teeth, especially at night, do you see in the morning that they are covered with a white or yellow substance and when you touch your teeth with your tongue, do you think they are rough? "

The answer each is "YES". 

So this substance is called dental plaque.

Anyone can see it and feel it. Everyone knows about it, but does everyone realize what it can cause? 

Please look at my post- Tooth Decay- Which Foods Cause Dental Decay Easy?

Now I will show you a picture of my patient and what plaque has caused. 

(Dr. Trenkova' s database- Patient with many caries and irritated gums)

As you can see in the picture, bad oral hygiene leads to many problems in our mouths.

First, the plaque accumulates on our teeth after each meal. If you do not brush your teeth regularly, its amount increases. It can harden in tartar if it is not removed daily.

What is the result? As plaque and tartar cause irritation of the gums. 
So, the first result is irritation of the gums. 

Secondly, plaque accumulation results in the formation of multiple cavities in the dental surfaces (many times for other complications - for example inflammation of the dental nerve, even further nerve complication called periodontitis. 

Dental plaque is the main cause of cavities and gum disease.

Third, poor oral hygiene is the cause of bad breath.
Fourth, poor oral hygiene can cause irritation to the oral mucosa.
Further undesirable effects can be expected. 

That is why I appeal to you to pay more attention to your oral hygiene in order to enjoy healthy teeth and gums and a lovely smile.
