People spend a lot of time worrying about their diet, or are they getting enough exercise, putting a lot of their focus into the health of their body. But are they putting enough emphasis on the health of their mouth? Oral health is often overlooked when considering your overall health, but by leaving bacteria to grow inside of your mouth you are putting yourself at risk. Some statistics can be seen in the infographic here about the oral health of our country, and it isn’t so pretty. Brushing 2 times a day is a start, but it just isn’t enough. Flossing and regular dental checkups need to be included in your oral hygiene routine to make sure you are doing everything you can to keep your oral health in tip-top shape. Schedule your appointment today with your local Stuart dentist and get on the road to a healthy mouth.
