A life without oral diseases

Based on preventive dentistry, based on forecast avoid the appearance of different diseases of the mouth with its main goal is to create awareness in society about the importance of dental health then we ask:

How to create awareness on prevention of oral diseases?

Therefore I consider it important to maintain oral health as only when in pain or not missing a tooth, we realize the relevance in our lives, and that if we have many children do not instill habits from brushing teeth 3 times a day is desirable from an early age have a good hygiene. . It would be good to implement various preventive programs or quickly detect the disease that is present as oral diseases are a public health problem very often. So these projects are necessary to prevent or cure disease, as there is a lack of education on dental hygiene and the great need of treatment, as has been demonstrated by studies that spew very high results for the existence of caries, the foster care programs and preventive measures since to maintain good oral health since the arrest in children and adolescents which subsequently benefit for permanent teeth. It is therefore necessary to identify risk factors and different types of prevention as the disease (caries, periodontitis |, gingivitis, among others.)

Dental cavities (caries and dental esthetics, 2011) infectious disease caused by bacteria, affects the hard tissues of teeth (enamel, dentin, cementum) is dependent sugar is the main thing would be very complex to protect the tooth, reducing the substrate (food) for bacteria, this reduces the control diet (reducing sugars), application d is in fluoride gels / toothpastes, knowing the type of brush and proper technique of brushing teeth.

Gingivitis (Wikipedia, 2011) Addressing the issue over which we speak was the gingivitis here are more important aspects of this disease. is one of the dental diseases that occur more often causes inflammation and bleeding of the gums caused by food debris caught between teeth, is directly related to inadequate cleaning, as stated above is important to know the techniques to use them properly brushing, oral hygiene and small soft brush, use of interdental hygiene items appropriate for each case (dental floss, toothpicks, brushes, gauze, etc..) are essential to prevent and treat this disease.
