Oral Hygiene not only keeps your mouth healthy, but affects all aspects of your overall health. To maintain good oral health, brush your teeth at least twice daily, floss, and eat fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Also, you should visit the dentist once every six months for a routine examination and cleaning. The dentist will remove plaque buildup, polish your teeth and check for cavities. He or she will also check your gums, and mouth for signs of health issues or cancer.
