Carrier Dentistry in Grand Prairie Texas Helps Educate Young Adults in Oral Hygiene
Carrier Dentistry in Grand Prairie Texas will be at Grand Prairie Collegiate Institute to educate the next generation on the importance of dental hygiene.
Poor oral hygiene can lead to bacteria growth causing cavities, and inflammation of the gums. In addition to that, studies have shown there is a link to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Therefore, it is important to educate young adults on oral health protection at a young age to prevent cavities and periodontitis, along with other diseases that come later in life.
Good oral health will generally include brushing teeth twice a day for at least 2 minutes with gentle round circular strokes, flossing the teeth at least once a day, use of a fluoride toothpaste, a diet that limits the amount of sugary food and drinks, schedule a dental visit at least twice a year, and visiting a dentist for emergency dental problems.
The topics being discussed are aimed at giving young adults the correct information to create good habits like brushing daily to prevent plaque and bacteria on teeth, flossing once a day to remove particles between teeth, how to prevent bad breath, the importance of fluoride usage, reasons for limiting sugar intake, and when to see a dental provider for an emergency.
According to Hien To, DDS, "Educating young adults on proper oral hygiene can help prevent oral disease, cavities, and improve overall oral health. Proper oral dental hygiene includes visiting the dentist twice a year because it helps in the early detection of oral diseases, prevents tooth loss, and improves the overall confidence of the patient."
