Oral health maintenance

Oral health is not just about teeth, it has a strong impact on rest of the body’s wellbeing as well. Your oral health can be raising flags about conditions affecting other body systems, making your regular dental check-ups more important.

Links of poor oral health to other diseases:

According to research and studies, poor oral health is linked to:

  • Cardio-vascular diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Dementia
  • Chronic Kidney Disease

On top of these, regular dental check-ups can help in early detection of oral cancers.

Steps to maintain good oral health:

  • Brushing regularly, twice daily and clean in between teeth with floss.
  • Drinking fluoridated tap water.
  • Wearing mouth guards while playing contact sports.
  • Minimising sugar intake, especially sticky sugar diet. If you have something with high sugar or acid rinse your mouth with water afterwards.
  • Visiting dentist twice a year for dental check-up
