Why Good Oral Health Care is Important

Good oral health care is important. Having good teeth is not only important for their immediate function (chewing and eating so you can survive), but it’s also important for a variety of other reasons. Flossy Brush, a purveyor of an all-in-one toothbrush and flossing device, explains why you need good oral health care. Contact us today for the best toothbrush!


  1. Survival. The whole reason we (and most other animals) have teeth, which are made of a hard, bone-like substance called dentin, is to survive. We need to be able to cut and chew our food, so we can eat it for sustenance. If you don’t take care of your teeth, you put yourself at risk of cavities, which is a decayed part of your tooth, making it harder and more painful to eat and chew your food.
  2. Aesthetics. Most of us like clean, white teeth. This is part of good oral health care. Brushing your teeth gets rid of harmful bacteria known as plaque, which is a soft, sticky film on your teeth, and is what gives you a whiter smile. Furthermore, people notice your teeth and, like it or not, judge you on your teeth. How you care for your teeth points to how you care for yourself, which speaks to character. This is very important for job interviews, as well as in your dating life.
  3. Preventing infection. If you don’t take care of your teeth, you are at a greater risk for heart attacks. When you have poor oral health, gingivitis can ensure. Gingivitis is a gum disease that left untreated can lead to tooth loss. Moreover, gingivitis can advance into periodontitis, which is when bacteria infects your gums and bone structure. This gum infection can cause bacteria to enter the bloodstream, where it attaches to blood vessels much like cholesterol does, increasing your risk for heart attack. Poor oral health can make diabetes more difficult to manage as well as increase the risk for preterm delivery.
  4. Bad breath. Known as halitosis, bad breath is the result of food getting stuck in your teeth and eating strong-odor foods such as garlic and onions. Other causes can be smoking or using tobacco and plaque build-up, which is bacteria in your mouth. Some diseases can cause bad breath as well as dry mouth, which neutralizes saliva, which actually helps with germ elimination in the mouth. Having bad breath is more about appeasing others because it usually doesn’t affect you. However, as a member of society, no one wants to talk to you very long if your breath is bad.

Flossy Brush makes an all-in-one toothbrush and floss holder. Flossy Brush is especially good as a kids’ toothbrush because it reminds kids to floss every time they brush. Flossing gets rid of all the food stuck in between your teeth, which puts your teeth more at risk of cavities forming. This toothbrush is ergonomic in design with soft bristles made to get hard to reach places. The floss holder will hold any type of floss; although, Flossy Brush’s Expanding Floss was made specifically to fit our proprietary toothbrushes.
