Research is showing that people with gum disease have a raised risk of heart attack later in life. Built-up plaque is the most common cause of gum disease and tooth decay, so for maximum antiaging benefits, revisit your daily brushing and flossing regime. The cosmetic effect is important, too: yellowing teeth are a give-away of age.
Essential Toothcare – Holistic dentistry
If you can find a holistic dentist, he or she will examine your head and neck as well as your teeth, and look at the impact your diet and lifestyle have on your dental health, working with you to eliminate potential problems. Holistic and homeopathic dentists may use homeopathic remedies and essential oils to relax and ease pain and prescribe herbs to support immunity or offer acupuncture or hypnosis for pain reduction.
Essential Toothcare – Go electric
Research suggests electric toothbrushes with oscillating brushes that rotate in two directions are more effective at removing plaque and reducing gum inflammation than regular toothbrushes. Brush at least twice a day for a minimum of two minutes. Pay attention to the area where gums and teeth meet, circling gently at front and back.Change the head regularly, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
