In response to a recent study which found that millions of Americans are going without dental care due to the economy, the Business Insider has offered some tips for how to keep teeth healthy without breaking the bank. According to the news source, there are preventative measures that can be taken at home to help people who may be struggling to afford care from having to go to the emergency room with a dental problem.
"You've heard it before, but flossing and brushing your teeth daily will help you avoid cavities and gum disease, the things that would send you to the dentist's chair in the first place," according to the news provider.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that people brush their teeth at least twice a day using an ADA-approved toothpaste. The organization also suggests replacing a toothbrush after three or four months, or when the bristles start to fray.
Of course, visiting the dentist is the best way to ensure proper oral health. Dentists are able to provide a thorough cleaning and detect any possible diseases or concerns that need to be taken care of before it becomes an urgent situation.
