[b]Teeth – A Life Sentence In Your Mouth[/b]
Canadians are keeping their teeth now longer than ever. Your grandparents might have them, and perhaps even your parents, but dentures are not a common option for many folks in today’s dental practices.
Less than seven percent of adults have lost all their teeth, compared to 17 percent just two decades ago. News worth smiling about (with your real teeth)!
[b]Pearly Whites – A Healthy Priority[/b]
Researchers are finding more and more links between oral health and the health of the rest of your body. Studies have demonstrated that, individuals with gum or periodontal disease, often also face concerns with increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Some research even suggests that moms-to-be with unhealthy gums, could risk a premature, low-birth-weight baby.
The World Health Organization notes that – poor oral health can affect how well you eat and sleep, and even your self-esteem and psychological well-being.
So by ensuring you have a healthy oral care routine, will minimize health risks overall.
Whiter Is Not Always “Righter”[/b]
Teeth are not intended to be “florescent white”. But that memo does not seem to be translating to a lot individuals getting on the too-white tooth train.
There is an impressive variety of whitening gels and strips on the market, as well as whitening toothpastes, gums and mouthwashes. But the best way to find out if whitening is right for you, is to check with your dentist before you pay for a promising-looking product.
At the end of the day, healthy teeth should not be a “trend”; rather they should be an ongoing practice in every household across Canada. So smiles can maintain a healthy glow for everyone!
