Teeth - Sometimes we take them for granted
by: Dental Assistant Team
Teeth. We seem to forget how much they serve us...
When we mention the usefulness of our teeth the first thing that comes to people's mind is chewing. It isn't surprising that the first thing people think of when they think of teeth is chewing, but teeth have a lot of other applications that often go unnoticed, our teeth help us smile, talk, hold things, cut things, and so much more...
I find myself asking my 11 year old: "did you brush your teeth?" which usually triggers a big sigh as the reply, but I can't help it. Knowing that once we have our permanent teeth, we are stuck with them for the rest of our lives! So they have to be healthy from day one.
Nowadays people tend to live a lot longer than in the past, so it is more important than ever to make our teeth last as long as possible so that we can enjoy their usefulness for as long as possible.
What we do at home every day, brushing twice a day AND flossing once in addition to a few trips to the hygienist to have a regular professional cleaning is going to not only keep a healthy outcome for our teeth, but a smile on our faces for a long time.
Keep your teeth in good shape, follow a healthy diet and healthy habits, and visit your dentist and your hygienist regularly!
