Do you want to keep your smile in tip-top shape? If so, that’s excellent news! Our team here at Salina Creek Dental in Salina, Utah, is happy to give you some news and updates on why brushing your teeth is important to your oral health.

When it comes to your smile, plaque, bacteria, and food particles can stick to your teeth, which weakens your tooth enamel and causes tooth decay or cavities. When this starts, cavities grow and bacteria can seep into your gums causing gum disease. If a cavity grows too large, it can lead to tooth loss, which eventually can lead to bone loss.

Having your teeth is imperative to life. Without a tooth or multiple teeth, your speech can become difficult, it will be hard to chew and eat foods, and the bone density can fade causing your cheeks to droop. Gum disease can also thrive which can lead to other serious health conditions like stroke and heart attacks.
