Dr. Swaty while interacting said that Good dental or oral
care is important to maintain healthy teeth, gums and tongue. Oral
problems, including bad breath, dry mouth, canker or cold sores,
tooth decay are all treatable with proper diagnosis and care, she
added.
Dr Swaty further said that many bacteria inside our mouth
build up plaque which causes tooth decay and gingivitis & can lead to
gum diseases. For a healthy smile, brushing after meals, using
antimicrobial mouthwash, and flossing at least once per day helps us
to keep our teeth healthy, she explained.
While answering the student’s questions she said healthy
diet that minimize sugary and starchy foods also helps to keep those
bad bacterial under control. She advised students to use the
toothbrush of appropriate size & shape along with an antimicrobial
toothpaste containing fluoride, which helps protect your teeth from
decay.
