Find The Right Dentist For You
Many people may think that they know all of the oral health basics, but they may be mistaken. Recently, Health Zone published a true-or-false quiz to test how much people know about dental care and oral health issues.
First, the news source asked: Is gingivitis bad breath? The answer is true, but gingivitis is more than that, it's also minor inflammation of the gums caused by plaque at the gum line. Furthermore, it is also an early sign of gum disease, which is why it should be treated.
Next, the information provider asked if nutrients that come from healthy foods can fight cavities and other dental health problems.
"True! According to Harry Hoediono, D.D.S., canned tuna and green, leafy veggies contain fluoride (a naturally occurring micronutrient). Products containing calcium, such as Kefir and cheese are also good for strengthening teeth," stated the news source.
EMedicineHealth.com also offered an oral health quiz. The website asked if brushing teeth or removing plaque is the best way to prevent gum disease. The answer is that although brushing teeth is important, it's not enough, people also need to floss regularly and visit the dentist to completely remove plaque.
