THE IMPORTANCE OF ORAL HYGIENE - know from one of the best dentist in Mumbai

To talk about our digestive system, we should begin by naming a crucial part, the mouth (with all its components such as teeth, gums, tongue, etc.), which is essential to process our food. If our mouth has any disease, our physical health will be affected, our digestion, and even our self-esteem. Now, we will talk about the importance of oral hygiene in learning to better care for it.

What is Oral Hygiene?

Oral hygiene includes the processes that keep our gums, teeth, tongue, and the mouth in general clean and healthy, allowing us to have fresh breath, preserve our teeth, and not suffer discomfort or pain. Dental hygiene has to be part of our habits, cleaning our teeth at least twice a day.

Why is Oral Hygiene important?

The importance of oral hygiene is that it allows us to keep our gums healthy so that our teeth will remain healthy and will be able to fulfill their function. We can also avoid other diseases and complications, such as the following:

According to the Academy of General Dentistry, there is a link between gum (periodontal) disease and health complications such as stroke and heart disease. Women with gum disease also show a higher incidence of premature birth.

Other research shows that more than 90% of systemic diseases (diseases that affect multiple organs or the entire body) have oral manifestations, including swollen gums, mouth ulcers, and dry mouth. Examples of these systemic diseases are diabetes, leukemia, oral cancer, pancreatic cancer, heart disease, kidney disease; so, realizing that we have oral disease, we could identify a symptom of systemic disease and go from our dentist to our doctor.

Poor oral health can lead to problems. Suppose you do not take care of your teeth and gums. In that case, you can suffer oral and facial pain, tooth loss, problems with the heart and other essential organs (from mouth infections), digestion problems that can lead to intestinal failure or colon syndrome irritability, among others.

How can I have good Oral Hygiene?

You must go to the dentist regularly, at least twice a year, especially in children, were looking at the teeth. Also, you can detect poor nutrition, growth and development alterations, and poor jaw alignment. Even at home, you need to take care of your oral health every day by doing the following:

  • Brush your teeth for two to three minutes, at least three times a day, with fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Floss daily before sleep to remove plaque from places your toothbrush can’t reach.
  • Eat healthy food to provide the necessary nutrients (vitamins A and C, mainly) to prevent gum disease.
  • Avoid cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, which can contribute to gum disease and oral cancer.

Oral health is vital for us to be well, so it is necessary that we worry about getting into the habit of brushing our teeth correctly and that we go to the dentist as recommended. As always, prevention is better than cure.

The queen of dentistry that other dentists could fix my implants with brexism.the professional service of the queen and staff are unbelievable after having 3 lots of failed implants but she used her talent to secure my best result.I'm from Australia and they couldn't help.but she shore could.a wealth of knowledge and experience at the fraction of the cost and goes beyond other implant dentists to fulfill your needs,whatever it takes.no pain as she blocks the mouth with injections.a caring dentist that I would be happy to recommend to anyone in the world..ceramic dental bridges I smashed due to brexism so I suggested a full upper bridge of polished titanium. Can't break those cellars.what a great job Dr Ritika and I can't say thank you so much to you.you are the queen of dental implants.take care as we are now friends for life.thank you

I’m from Australia & had been considering a smile makeover with dental crowns for some time. In the lead up to finally making a decision, I had a tooth break at the gum line & considering that my remaining teeth were worn down due to grinding, had fillings or went missing over the years - I had to act. After researching quite a number of dentists, I chose Dr Ritika Arora’s Aesthetic Smiles Dental Clinic mainly due to the reviews that I read which included local and overseas based patients. I have just recently finished the first stages of my smile makeover which included crowns for my existing teeth, 2 extractions & a number of implants for missing teeth. So far so good & I must say that I have been impressed with the way Dr Ritika has carried out the work as well as the work carried out by her consulting specialist doctors. I will be returning in about 5 months time after the first stage of the implants have had time to fuse with the bone. On return, the implants will be finished off with the final crown work. If you are considering any major aesthetic and or dental implant work - I would highly recommend this clinic for the quality of the work & competitiveness of their pricing. Thank you Dr Ritika Arora & I look forward to seeing you in a few months for the final result.

As someone who has struggled with juvenile periodontitis since the age of 16, I've worked with dentists around the world, and it was refreshing to find a dentist that I was able to work with directly from beginning to end. Dr. Arora was highly professional, thoughtful, and empathetic throughout the process. I had already started the process and had implants in place, and she helped me with six abutments and a total of 26 crowns. I reached out a few weeks before my trip, and she responded immediately. She took the time to talk through my history, and I could speak with her directly, not one of her assistants. She was very transparent and empathetic to my situation. She addressed my concerns about fees and followed through by not making it about money right when I showed up at her office. She paid attention to every detail and was thorough and getting the job done, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to get some solid work done, whether it be implants or cosmetic work.

Visited for dental implants Was looking for a good dental clinic in mumbai , found Dr Ritika online and was quite impressed with her credentials and the reviews on google I was struggling with a old broken bridge with missing teeth . On Consultation with Dr Ritika suggested me immediate dental implants. I had 3 teeth extracted and 3 dental implants place on the same day . The procedure was painless though there was some nagging discomfort for a few days later which is quite normal when you have so much dental work done in one sitting After 4 months the dental implants were restored with 4 ceramic crowns. I happy to be back to enjoying my food. Modern clinic , very professional , affordable and the overall experience at Aesthetic smiles dental clinic is good especially for nervous patients like me who tend to neglect dental treatment Highly recommended
