We daily need to care of our teeth. Some basic dental treatment involves cleaning and flossing our teeth regularly, seeing our dental professional and/or dental hygienist for regular checkups and cleanings, and eating a mouth-healthy diet, which means foods high in whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and milk products.

Dental hygiene is important for whole body and just not smile. Dental cavities and decay of tooth is most common medical condition and the single most common disease in children.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than19 percent of children have untreated cavities and around 40 percent of children have decay in their “baby teeth.” Further this figure is increasing with new generations.
To take care of such issues, we need to have good knowledge of improving oral hygiene. One of the factor which helps in maintaining oral hygiene is beneficial food.
There are so many foods which can help in improving oral hygiene. For example Foods that helps muscle and bones also helps teeth and gums. [/b] contribute to healthy gum tissue. Breads and cereals are rich in vitamin B while fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamin C. Intake of such food can improve oral system and thus the entire body indirectly. Flossing is also recommended after every meal for some peoples.
Fluoride is primary protector against cavities of teeth. Acid resistance is developed by fluoride. Therefore drinking fluoridated water is recommended by many dentists. Milk and cheese are rich sources of calcium and phosphate and encourages remineralization. Sugar free chewing gum helps in saliva production and thus cleans surface of teeth. Green tea contains polyphenol antioxidant compounds and it reduces plaques, gum diseases and cavities. Green tea also reduces bad breath and helps in strengthening tooth enamel is as it is rich in fluoride.
Water is always important and is also for oral hygiene. It cleans the mouth and produces saliva that deposits essential minerals into the teeth. With water, gums remains hydrated and it further helps in washing away particles from the teeth.
If our teeth and oral system is healthy, it can further help in improving our whole body’s health.
Therefore Dental hygiene is important for whole body and just not smile!

Dental care is an integral part of daily life and little reluctance and careless attitude may lead to big problem in future. In this context I will like to highlight a different aspect of dental care.
Halitosis or Bad breath is often due to the consequences of poor dental health habits. It may also serve as a sign of other serious health problems. Several unhealthy habits including the types of food intake plays pivotal role in the shape of bad breath. The problem is that it is very easy to get bad breath, but quite difficult to get rid of it.
Bad Breath and Food Intake
As all the foods we take to get smashed in our mouth and followed by digestion and absorption into the blood stream. After absorption the foods are carried to the lungs and given off inside the mouth as breath. When we eat foods having strong smells (like garlic or onions), it is very difficult to cover up the smell even after brushing, flossing and using mouthwash. The smell will only go after the food ultimately run through the body.
Bad Habits Causing Bad Breath
Brushing and flossing is extremely significant in curbing bad breath. Any neglect in this respect may cause serious bad breath problem as bacteria will thrive heavily on teeth, gums and even on the tongue. Along with brushing and flossing, use of antibacterial mouthwash solutions can also help. Having dentures often cause additional trouble and special care for cleanliness must be considered.
Bad habits like smoking and chewing of tobacco-based products will apparently increase the occurrence of bad breath in conjunction with stained teeth. They also may reduce the capacity to taste food and irritate the gums.
Bad Breath Associated Health Problems
Bad breath is frequently linked to severe problems of gum. If bad breath or bad taste of oral cavity persist for long it may be warning for serious gum problems. These are often related to plaque formation on teeth and the bacteria thriving on them are responsible for producing toxins that further damage and irritate the gums along with the jaw bones. Dental appliances if not fitted properly also may cause bad breath and dental problems. Other causes include dental caries and yeast infections in the oral cavity.
Xerostomia or dryness of mouth may initiate bad breath. Formation of adequate saliva is extremely important for cleaning and moistening the oral cavity by neutralizing the acid produced by the harmful bacteria present in the plaque. It also washes away the dead cells deposited on the gums, cheeks and tongue. Removal of these cells is essential as otherwise they may get decomposed and thus can produce severe bad breath. Saliva is necessary to moisten and cleanse the mouth by neutralizing acids produced by plaque and washing away dead cells that accumulate on the tongue, gums, and nerves. Untimely removal of these cells may cause decomposition followed by bad breath. Various medications have dry mouth as a side issue. Sometimes dry mouth may be caused by salivary gland problems. Apart from dry mouth a number of other diseases, including infections of the respiratory tract, nasal drip, chronic acid reflux, liver illness, diabetes and kidney problems may cause bad breath.
