Ask the Dentist
Everyone knows that tooth decay and gum disease are dangerous, but they are also very influential in causing other health-related problems. Alzheimer's disease, pancreatic cancer, heart disease, and more serious health problems can result from poor teeth-management.
Common gum diseases are playing a large role in causing heart attacks in patients with chronic kidney disease. Treating these gum conditions in a number of ways (going to your dentist, brushing and flossing regularly) can drastically reduce the chance of a heart attack.
Visiting the dentist is pivotal in keeping healthy teeth for children, but the most important aspect of a child's tooth health begins at home. Brushing, flossing, and eating right are all key for children to maintain healthy teeth.
Cold/hot could be a factor in oral health, obviously the cariogenicity (decay causing) sugar content if not rinsed or brushed right after ingesting such foods is a risk factor as well as the “junk food” substitute for healthy nutrition enters the story. Rinsing immediately dilutes the noxious sugars.
