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.

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 facial pain issue, this was a second opinion i needed but the doctor was giving ambiguous answers & was not open to explaining in detail what would be best treatment. Again the answers were confusing and doc was not sure if the treatment would work or not. After having consulted a few docs before i was certain that this condition is not a rare one and facial pain is very common today. Again i was to visit doctor urmi but another dentist in her place consulted me which was surprising as i had no prior knowledge of this. I would appreciate if the doctor showed more enpathy towards the patient.

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

Last year in the month of December I have visited her and she advised me to remove my tooth and then do an implant and I had the most traumatic dental extraction experience, still I kept myself calm thinking that she is well known and experienced doctor and it’s been 5 to 6 months she did not followed up and avoid to reply to my text about the implant, Today i have visited another dentist to my wildest dream, I came to know that she has destroyed my entire jaw bone in the extraction process and no implant is possible now. It’s all big name and low fame, terrible diagnosis and treatment. Please be careful.

I am from the US and was living in Africa when I needed some implants done. My global travel service recommended Dr. Ritika and my experience with her was fantastic! After I moved back to the States, I returned to India specifically to have her do more dental work for me. if not for Covid, I would return to India to finish the implant work she started. Both my dentist and oral surgeon here have commented on the high quality of work I received from her. Her clinic is exceptionally clean and her staff are very nice. Dr. Ritika was also very attentive to my travel needs and even sent cars to pick me up for my appointments. Plus, It costs me less to take a 2-week vacation AND get multiple implants than to get just 1 implant on the US! I highly recommend her, and look forward to when I can go back to visit enchanting India.
