Oral Hygiene = Healthy body.

One may not realize this and probably ignore them, but proverbs have this knack of coming and biting us hard on our backsides later in life. For example, ‘Health is wealth’. You choose to ignore this proverb at your own risk, literally. You cannot go ahead and think of raking in the moolah if you haven’t kept your mind and body free from the numerous diseases and conditions that may feel like settling within us.

#1 Health
Health needs to rank as a person’s number one priority and the first step to prevent diseases and other conditions creating havoc within one’s system is to maintain oral hygiene. The mouth is the easiest entry for germs and other nasty bacteria you see animated in advertisements, to enter one’s body and cause many a sleepless night. There are many different diseases and conditions that can affect the mouth and consequently lead to other health issues throughout one’s body.

Keep ‘em of the mouth
Awareness about the different diseases and conditions that are likely to affect one’s oral hygiene can not only help prevent those but also help one in learning about the treatment for oral health. One of these diseases is Gingivitis or the deterioration of gums. The symptoms may include blackening of gums, bleeding and swollen gums, a deteriorated jaw and also loose teeth. The other oral diseases and conditions quite common are mouth cancer, halitosis (condition of having stale or foul-smelling breath), tooth cavities, hand, foot and mouth disease, oral herpes and other infections.

Learn and prevent
Quite a mouthful, aren’t these? But gaining knowledge about the different oral diseases and infections can help one be on the guard always and also have your dentist visits lined up regularly. For a clean and disease-free mouth eventually means a clean and disease-free body.

‘Prevention is better than cure’. One would do well to remember this proverb so as to keep various diseases and conditions at an arm’s length and lead a happy, healthy life.
