Myths about Oral Health

Your oral health serves as the window to how healthy you are. However, there may be several areas of confusion related to how oral care impacts the well-being of a person. Here are some of the myths of oral care busted.

When there is bad breath, it indicates that you are suffering from a gum disease

Though bad breath is an indication of gum disease, it can be also a symptom of other problems related to your health. You can be only sure about the root cause when you visit your Dentist Holly Springs. In case your dentist gives you a clean chit of health, you can consult your primary care doctor. That’s because there may be other reasons for your bad breath such as bowel obstruction and acid reflux, or any other digestive issue.

Sugar Is The Main Cause Of Tooth Decay & Oral Health Issues

According to some dental experts, sugar may not be the reason for tooth decay always. Though sugar does play some part in tooth decay, it may not be the main culprit. Mouth bacteria may form an acid that gets combined with saliva to build up plaque in your teeth. This is a common phenomenon due to the consumption of starch and carbohydrates.

Gum Disease May Not Be Common

Contrary to the myth, the occurrence of gum disease can be quite common. As humans grow older, they are more vulnerable to infections and that includes infections in their gums. It is important to take care of your oral health.

Ashley who was my hygienist today did such a wonderful job on my teeth. I have gone in for cleanings before with other dentists in the area of Goldsboro and always come out with yellow teeth still.. I did not have any any kind of whitening done she just cleaned my teeth and I felt so good afterward .
