Dental care is concerned with your teeth, gums, and mouth. The goal is to prevent complicated dental problems such as tooth decay (cavities) and gum disease and to maintain the overall health of your mouth. A healthy mouth which is free of infections, injuries, and other problems with teeth and gums, is an indication of the best oral health. To look after your dental care, there are different dental professionals who focus on the health and hygiene of the patients. Disease and other medical conditions can also affect your dental health and vise versa. Failing to properly care for your oral health may lead to other health problems. You can help prevent or minimize many oral health problems by regular preventive steps like brushing, flossing, rinsing, and regular visits to dental health professionals.
