Oral Hygiene

Healthy gums and teeth are very important to your appearance. If you have diseased gums and rotting teeth you will not want to smile. If you don't have a dentist ask a trusted friend to recommend one to you. Have an examination and cleaning and if your teeth and gums need to be treated you will receive a care plan. This care plan will show you what kind of work needs to be done a
nd in what order. Everyone should have their teeth cleaned twice a year. Tooth and gum problems rarely heal themselves. Left alone they only get worse. Smoking ruins good teeth and gums so if you smoke, quit. Smoking ruins your appearance too by robbing your body of oxygen. You will get wrinkles much earlier in life if you smoke. You will also have many health problems throughout your life if you smoke. Remember that no one likes to talk to a person who has bad breath. When you smoke and have gum disease you have bad breath all of the time. Your teeth will turn yellow and your smile will be ruined. I go to "Mortenson Dental" on Poplar Level Road in Louisville. They are very nice people and won't fuss at you for not taking care of your teeth. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once a day.
