Our mouths are an important but often overlooked part of the overall health of our bodies – it is common to put off a trip to the dentist for example until you are suffering from severe pain. Unfortunately this can lead to a lot of problems later in life if we fail to keep up to date with dental check ups and of course maintain good levels of oral hygiene.

We all know that cleaning teeth is important but there are a lot of people who do not clean their teeth regularly enough – there are a vast array of toothbrushes available nowadays, from state of the art electric toothbrushes to an environmentally friendly bamboo toothbrush, so there is no excuse for not brushing! Teeth ands gums should both be cleaned at least twice a day, and also ideally after eating or drinking sugary foods and drinks.

The reason that a regular check up at the dentists is important is because they will be able to spot something that is potentially going to cause bigger problems early. This way, you won’t get to a position where you are in unbearable agony, or that you are going to end up losing a tooth that could otherwise be saved.

Dentists are well aware of the other problems in the mouth aside from those of the teeth and gums as well and will be able to spot signs of cancer in the mouth and throat early, which is why it is important to visit regularly.
