There are many things from your childhood that you wish you had now. Nap time jumps to the top of the list. There are certain shows you used to watch, and the memories still make you wistful.

Dentists are people, too. Believe it or not, there are nights when we are so tired, we’d like nothing better than to just get into bed… without brushing and flossing our teeth. Of course, we never do that because we’ve seen the consequences to patients’ smiles when they skip oral hygiene care at home. In Plano, dental cleaning is imperative in the morning and even more so at night in order to remove the particles of food that bacteria might feed on.
When you sleep at night, you rarely swallow. This is because saliva production decreases during sleep. But because you’re not swallowing, the number of bacteria in your mouth increases. Nighttime oral care helps to eliminate the bits of food that get left behind throughout the day that bacteria can feast on during the night. Your nightly oral hygiene routine should include brushing, flossing and an antiseptic mouth rinse. Continue reading to find out how you can best perform each of these important steps.

Diabetes sufferers should know about the effect gum health has on their overall wellbeing. People suffering from type II diabetes are at a much greater risk for developing periodontal (gum) disease. Once the condition has developed, blood glucose levels (or the amount of sugar in the blood) are increasingly difficult to control. Why? Because people with diabetes are more susceptible to developing infections — and their weakened immune systems mean their bodies have a harder time healing from something like gum disease.
