There are many barriers that keep people from getting the oral care they need. For example, The American Dental Association states that cost, transportation and a lack of basic understanding of dental health can all impact a person's ability to care for their teeth. Recently, Fox News published an article exploring some ways to improve oral health.
First, the news source reminded readers to never underestimate the importance of flossing. This simple action clears away food particles from hard-to-reach places in the mouth. If left unchecked, these leftover bits of food can wear away at tooth enamel.
Next, Fox highlighted the connection between diet and oral health.
"You should eat a balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables and limit snacks between meals. Also, make sure you’re getting enough calcium from foods like milk, yogurt and cheese. Calcium is essential for building strong bones and teeth," according to the news source.
Finally, the information provider stated that people with crooked teeth may want to consider braces, and not just for aesthetic purposes either. Crooked teeth can be more difficult to clean, which increases a person's risk of cavities.
