When people think of oral care they typically may think of preventing bad breath or having brilliantly white teeth. Many, however may not realize how vital our dental health is to our body’s cumulative health. The human mouth is the portal through which the majority of known diseases enter our bodies and the cleanliness of an individual’s mouth can be directly linked to that persons overall health. Dental health can in large part be measured by the condition of a persons teeth. The most prevalent of oral diseases is Dental Caries, commonly known as tooth decay. From the years of 1999 to 2004 over 59% of children ages 12 to 19 had signs of tooth decay present on their permanent teeth. Caries has affected millions of Americans but is generally preventable by practicing traditional dental care such as brushing one’s teeth and flossing. Another dental disease that affects millions of Americans in Periodontal Disease. This Disease affects the gums and causes tooth loss in adults of all ages who suffer from it. But it too, like dental caries, is preventable through regular visits to your dentist and proper dental hygiene.
