Using Toothpaste to Clean Teeth

Find UK Dentists »

Teeth play an important role in our everyday lives. Healthy teeth are vital for eating efficiently and help use talk with ease (plus, it always helps if the person you are talking to can understand what you are trying to say). Not only that but a white, tooth-filled smile is generally seen as much more attractive and healthy that one with yellowing or missing teeth.

Cleaning your teeth is the best way to fight bad breath by destroying the microorganisms that cause it. Bad breath itself is not really a major medical problem, however it can be unpleasant and undesirable. This is why it is key to brush your teeth in the morning, especially, as the bacteria has had all night to multiply and grow in its ideal environment causing the dreaded, morning breath.

If you have clean teeth, you are also protecting yourself against tooth decay. This is not only unattractive but it can be very painful for you and may lead to your teeth falling out if the dentist has not already removed them. If you notice tooth decay and refuse to do anything about it, you could find yourself prematurely investing in a good set of dentures, which are both costly and can cause difficulty with eating.
