Mind Your Oral Health: Your Body Will Thank You

Hey Finessees.  Joi at rxfitnesslady invited me to participate in a mini blog challenge.  Todays challenge was to  vlog, video, or podcast.  I decided to share 5 VIDEOS (pow Joi!) on oral health.   Below you will find videos that I recommend frequently while seeing patients.

Good oral hygiene results in a mouth that looks and smells healthy. This means:
  • Your teeth are clean and free of debris
  • Gums are pink and do not hurt or bleed when you brush or floss
  • Bad breath is not a constant problem
If your gums do hurt or bleed while brushing or flossing, or you are experiencing persistent bad breath, see your dentist. Any of these conditions may indicate a problem.
Your dentist or hygienist can help you learn good oral hygiene techniques and can help point out areas of your mouth that may require extra attention during brushing and flossing.
How is Good Oral Hygiene Practiced?
Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth not only enable you to look and feel good, they make it possible to eat and speak properly. Good oral health is important to your overall well-being.
