There are many different ways that one can take care of their teeth and there is probably not one more important than the other. They all kind of depend on each other. Certainly the most important one that I feel is visiting the dentist on a regular basis. Going to dentist on regular basis will help us evaluate, make sure that there aren't any sort of existing problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, missing teeth or broken teeth, things like that. That's probably the most important one because we can help trouble shoot anything that is a problem and figure out the source of the problem as well as determining a solution for the problem. Certainly at home is probably the next most important one. Home being in working on your hygiene, you know. Brushing and flossing is certainly, probably the most important thing that you can do at home to ensure that you take good care of your teeth. Using the dentist on a regular basis for exams and cleanings as well as being at home and working on brushing and flossing; those two things are probably the biggest contributors. There are other contributors as well that we need to kind of look at to help take care of our teeth and certainly it's from a dietary standpoint. People we find that have more consumption of sugar, sugar beverages, sugary foods, anything that has a lot of sweets in it can certainly be more increased likelihood of having cavities. Certainly, things like smoking, diabetes, heart disease, things like that can also lead to gum disease. So it's important that when you're keeping your teeth healthy and your gums healthy that you also have to look at the medical side of things as the medical history can also oftentimes contribute to problems with your teeth. Therefore, it is important to go see a dentist on a regular basis; also make sure that you're healthy from the medical standpoint and certainly working on your hygiene at home and also reducing things such as the amount of sugar that's in your diet.
