There are just some things that you accept you must do consistently (even if you’re not always thrilled about them). You need to eat. You need to drink water. You need to pay your bills and your taxes. Not always very exciting things but essentials nonetheless! When it comes to brushing and flossing, this is one more thing to add to that list of necessary tasks you simply must adhere to! So, how to feel good about dental hygiene instead of wishing it would go away? Keep the many benefits in mind, of course!
It Helps You Avoid Oral Disease
When you brush and floss your smile, it actually helps you avoid diseases that will develop if you practice poor dental hygiene (or ignore it altogether). What makes this possible? Well, plaque is the main problem because it’s full of bacteria, it covers your teeth, and if you don’t remove it, it’s going to lead to decay and gingivitis. So, remove it with brushing and flossing and all will remain well.
It Helps You Maintain Good Breath
About all of that bacteria we just talked about: It not only leads to oral diseases but also causes halitosis (also known as bad breath). Keeping it off of your smile with brushing and flossing means you’ll enjoy pleasant breath!
It Helps Your Smile Remain Bright
Did you know that dental hygiene is greatly responsible for your smile remaining bright and white? While staining is always possible, when you remove plaque, food particles, and beverage particles from teeth, you keep them clean, so stains are less likely to develop.
It Helps Dental Work Last Longer
Remember, your dental hygiene keeps your dental crowns, bridges, veneers, and more clean, too, so they last a long time!
