    teeth health smile dentistFor some people, cleaning their teeth is a necessary chore done only to maintain healthy, white teeth and a great smile. Recent research shows that brushing your teeth and maintaining good oral hygiene might have more far more impact on your general health than most people realise.

    Links are being studied between poor oral care and conditions such as dementia, heart disease, diabetes and oral cancers. The importance of maintaining a good oral hygiene routine cannot be emphasised enough.

    Key takeaways

    – Brush twice a day, floss once a day

    – See your dentist once a year

    – Replace your toothbrush each season
