LOS ANGELES, July 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A July 6 article on Redbook Magazine
The clinic says that the Redbook article makes an excellent point because, just like the rest of the human body, teeth and gums rely on nutrients obtained from food for growth and maintenance; it's also true that, long before the invention of toothbrushes, humanity largely relied on crunchy foods like celery, apples, and jicama to clean teeth and limit tooth decay – although with admittedly very mixed results. However, while many of us might similarly rely mainly on kibble to keep our pets' teeth in some kind of shape, Medical Center Dental Care notes that a dog or cat's teeth don't need to last as long as a human's -- and that veterinarians nevertheless tell us that our pets should always have their teeth brushed regularly (even if few cat owners dare try). With more and more human beings now regularly living into their nineties and beyond, it's important to do everything possible to maintain our teeth and gums for as long as possible, and even good home-based oral hygiene can still leave a great deal of tooth-decay causing plaque and calculus that only a skilled dental professional can safely remove, says the clinic.
Medical Center Dental Care adds that it invokes the wise words of the late comedian, Soupy Sales: "Be true to your teeth, and they will never be false to you." The clinics adds that, while dentures might not sound so bad to people who don't' have them, losing a tooth is never a pleasant process and most people don't realize how difficult teeth are to properly replace. Dental implants are the only solution that actually deal with the issue of bone loss, but getting them is far from cheap and always time consuming. As always, says the clinic, prevention with regular cleanings and excavations– even for the very youngest of us with a pediatric dentist – is the only way there is to truly keep our commitment to our teeth.
