Hi Beauties! Who likes to brush their teeth? Sometimes we like to underestimate toothbrushes, even though dental and oral health matters shouldn’t be taken lightly, you know.
If you often skip brushing your teeth, get ready to face problems that make you feel bored. Come on, take a look at five dental and oral health problems that can arise as a result of rarely brushing your teeth.
1. Bad breath and canker sores

If you like to skip brushing your teeth, get ready to become a “figure” that makes other people grin due to bad breath. Bad breath can make you feel inferior and less confident. Apart from that, you are also at risk of experiencing canker sores which make chewing or talking uncomfortable.
Bad breath and canker sores can be caused by a collection of bacteria and food particles left on the teeth and tongue. Brushing your teeth regularly can help clean the area, prevent the formation of bacteria that cause bad breath, and maintain oral hygiene to avoid canker sores.
Therefore, diligently brushing your teeth is an important step to maintain overall dental and oral health.
2. Gum inflammation

Inflammation of the gums is a dental and oral health problem that can occur as a result of rarely brushing your teeth. If the gums are already inflamed, eating becomes unpleasant. In addition, inflamed gums usually appear red, swollen, and often bleed when brushing your teeth or chewing food.
Rarely cleaning food debris can cause bacteria to multiply in the gum area, resulting in inflammation. Without proper treatment, gum inflammation can develop into more serious gum disease and damage the tissues that support your teeth.
Therefore, it is important to maintain oral hygiene by diligently brushing your teeth and using dental floss to clean between your teeth.
Tartar is a dental and oral health problem that can occur as a result of rarely brushing your teeth. Tartar forms when plaque, a sticky layer of bacteria and food debris, hardens on the tooth surface. If you have this, you will need additional action from the dentist to clean it.
Tartar not only causes teeth to look yellow or mottled, but can also be a breeding ground for bacteria that contribute to cavities, gum infections, and other problems. By diligently caring for dental hygiene, including brushing your teeth and cleaning between your teeth with dental floss, you can prevent the formation of tartar and maintain overall health of your teeth and mouth.
Caries is a serious problem in dental and oral health that can arise from rarely brushing your teeth. Caries occurs when bacteria in the mouth produce acids that wear down the hard coating of teeth, causing cavities or cavities.
Infrequently brushing your teeth allows food debris and plaque to stick to your teeth, giving bacteria an opportunity to damage the protective tooth enamel. Caries not only causes pain and discomfort, but can also damage tooth tissue to the point where fillings or tooth extraction are required. You don’t want your teeth to get cavities, do you?
Therefore, routine regular toothbrushes need to be done to prevent caries and maintain the health of your teeth and mouth.
5. Dangerous Diseases

It is undeniable that rarely brushing your teeth can cause serious diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums that makes the gums red, swollen and often bleed when brushing your teeth.
If left unchecked, gingivitis can develop into periodontitis which damages the supporting tissues of the teeth. This disease can cause tooth loss and various other health problems. Creepy, right? So, to avoid this dangerous disease, be diligent in brushing your teeth, beauties!
So, beauties, never underestimate a toothbrush, OK? The five dental and oral health problems above can be avoided by diligently caring for dental and oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day with toothpaste that contains fluoride, use dental floss to help clean between your teeth, eat less sweet snacks, and have your teeth checked regularly to the dentist at least once every six months.
With healthy teeth and a clean mouth, your smile will always look beautiful and confident. So, from now on, make a toothbrush your loyal friend to maintain the health and beauty of your teeth and mouth!
