Good oral health refers to the state of your teeth, gums, and mouth where they are free from disease and functioning correctly. Good oral health includes the following:
Healthy teeth: Teeth are free from decay and damage, and they are properly aligned.
Healthy gums: Gums are firm and pink, and they fit tightly around the teeth.
Fresh breath: Breath is fresh and not caused by bad oral health.
Proper bite: Teeth come together properly and function correctly for chewing and speaking.
Clean tongue: The tongue is clean and free from bacteria that cause bad breath.
No pain or discomfort: The mouth and teeth are free from pain, discomfort, or sensitivity.
Maintaining good oral health requires regular brushing and flossing, limiting sugary and acidic foods and beverages, and visiting the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. Good oral health is essential for overall health and well-being, as poor oral health has been linked to several health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory infections.
