Why take care of your mouth?

Because you will prevent cavities, infections and unpleasant odors in the oral cavity.


Dental and gingival diseases can lead to the loss of teeth, the latter will lose their alignment and in the remaining spaces will be stored food debris harder to remove by brushing at home.


When you lose your teeth, the chewing of food is deficient and thus decompensations occur not only at the chewing level but also at the digestive level.


The lack of teeth is not only unsightly, it also creates a loss of confidence in smiling. Not to mention the close correlation between gingival infections and diabetes, heart disease (91% of patients with gum disease). Infections in the oral cavity cause inflammation of the blood vessels that increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.


Gum disease also leads to premature births, where newborns often experience lung and heart problems, as well as learning difficulties.


Osteoporosis and gum disease also have something in common, bone loss. When you lose bone in the oral cavity, it becomes disadvantageous if you need an implant job. You will need extra time and costs to add the bone needed to make up for what you lost.


Smoking can be unpleasant as an effect (a patient confessed to me that when she kissed her husband it was like licking an ashtray), but it's not just that, smoking and periodontitis are best friends. Rheumatoid arthritis, pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and obesity are some of the other diseases associated with gum disease.


Finally, I do not want to list other inconveniences because if you brush your teeth you will not have these problems. Surely, if you brush your teeth, you will trust yourself, you will be positive, you will smile with pleasure, you will laugh spontaneously, you will look attractive, you will open many doors and the right ones 🙂

Professionally and personally you will always have an advantage. When your teeth look good and your breath is fresh, success is closer and everything becomes simpler.


Motivate yourself to take care of your smile!


With motivation,
