Importance of oral hygiene
Daily oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing will remove most of the plaque and bacteria that is developed during the day. However, it doesn’t completely remove or prevent all of the risks of periodontal conditions. The biggest contributor to gum diseases is a plaque and it mostly results from rotted food and bacteria It is usually developed on hard to reach places with normal hygiene. Periodontal diseases gradually destroy the support and enamel of your natural teeth and only way to prevent it is with a regular checkup.
