Common Oral Hygiene Problems and How to Prevent Them

Poor dental hygiene can affect you physically and mentally. Some of the most common dental problems are due to a lack of oral hygiene.

Fortunately, many dental issues can be easily prevented with the right practices and products. Let’s learn about some of the most common oral hygiene issues and how to prevent them

1.     Cavities

Cavities refer to the permanent damage to the teeth caused by plaque. Plaque is a direct result of consuming food high in sugar and starch and not removing it properly from between the teeth. This allows the oral bacteria to feed on sugar and starch, eventually destroying enamel – the protective layer on the teeth.

The only way to prevent cavities is to make sure there are no food particles left between teeth before going to bed. LBailar’s Flosser Electric Toothbrush comes with fitted tri-length bristles and gives your teeth and gums a thorough cleaning with its 45,000 sonic vibrations per minute. The six spare heads make sure that you don’t forget to replace after every 3-months and your brush still does an excellent job of removing and reducing plaque.

2.     Bad Breath

Bad breath is one of the most common and embarrassing dental problems. While bad breath could result from many dental issues such as gum diseases, cavities, plaque buildup, dry mouth, tongue bacteria, or oral cancer, poor oral hygiene is also a leading contributor to it. And to most people, staying on top of your dental hygiene can help prevent bad breath.

The easiest way to prevent bad breath is to brush and floss daily, use mouthwash, clean your tongue, and steer clear of tobacco, cigars, cigarette, and excessive alcohol.  These healthy habits will prevent gum diseases, plaque buildup, and cavities and will also help reduce your chances of oral cancer.

Invest in LBailar Sonicderm Toothbrush for thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums every time.

3.     Stained Teeth

Stained teeth lead to self-consciousness, and people end up hiding their beautiful smiles from everyone. The discoloration is most often the result of stuck food particles in teeth. Coffee and tea are also some common culprits behind yellowing teeth.

Rinse your mouth and brush your teeth after every meal to prevent stained teeth. Use teeth whitening toothpaste along with anti-bacterial mouthwash. Studies have also indicated that the technique applied by electric toothbrushes whiten teeth and prevent discoloration.
