Do You Need Dental Implants?
(http://ow.ly/RkkI30ndTa8)

If tooth decay or an accident have you missing teeth, then you may be a great candidate for a dental implant. Implants serve as a substitute for tooth roots attaching an artificial tooth to your smile. You must have healthy bone density, strong gums, and be willing to practice good oral hygiene to qualify for one.

How Often Should You Floss?
(http://ow.ly/phiX30ndTa2)

Flossing is an important part of your oral hygiene routine. It is a crucial step in keeping your teeth and gums clean. However, what is the correct amount of times one should be flossing each day? Dentists would ideally like you to floss after every meal. This is very uncommon for most people though, as most people only do it once, if at all. If you’re only going to floss once, it’s vital to use the correct flossing techniques to be sure you’re cleaning your teeth correctly.

Foods That Are Bad For Your Teeth
(http://ow.ly/mmNd30ndTa1)

Your diet can play a big part in your oral health. Picking the right foods and avoiding others can do you a lot of good when it comes to maintaining a great smile. While citrus fruits and juices have many vitamins for you, they are also highly acidic and can erode your enamel over time. Chewy candy is another one to avoid as they can stick to your teeth for long periods and are full of sugar that can rot your teeth.

Brush Your Tongue
(http://ow.ly/McYy30ndT9Z)

We’ve been told countless times the importance of brushing our teeth. However, many people forget about their tongue. Your tongue contains loads of bacteria, so it’s important to clean it to avoid bad breath and for general oral hygiene. Many times the bacteria is stuck on your tongue so you need to brush it before it can be rinsed out. When brushing your tongue brush back and forth, side to side, and then rinse with water.

Pregnancy And Dental Care
(http://ow.ly/wuMB30ndT9X)

When you are pregnant, it’s especially important to practice good oral hygiene habits. This is because pregnancy causes hormonal changes which can increase your risk of developing gum disease, cavities, pregnancy gingivitis, pregnancy tumors, and tooth erosion. All of these health problems can lead to harming your unborn child as well. Make sure to regularly see your dentist while you’re pregnant and don’t skip your cleanings.
