Argyle Dental Professional Discusses Healthy Habits

 October is National Dental Hygiene Month and Dr. Jonathan Golab is sharing the benefits of a daily dental care regimen in honor of it. Dr Golab, a Flower Mound and Argyle dental professional said “It is vital to develop a daily regime of teeth cleaning, It’s amazing how many don’t brush and floss every day.”

The American Dental Association recently released a report estimating 164 million work hours have been lost each year due to oral disease. Partnering once again with Wm. Wrigley, Jr. Company, manufacturer of Orbit chewing gum, the American Dental Hygienist Association is promoting awareness and education for oral hygiene this year’s theme: “It’s simple. Healthy habits for a healthy smile.” “Treatment of symptoms in a patient seeking dental care is essential,” said Golab. “But, one must also focus on the source of the problem.”

“Brush. Floss. Rinse. Chew.” is the slogan behind the ADHA’s partnership with Orbit gum. The goal is to reinforce how important it is to maintain a healthy mouth through preventative care and restorative dentistry such as porcelain veneers.

Proven in clinical studies as a vital step of a healthy dental regime, chewing sugar-free gum stimulates saliva, a natural defender against tooth decay. Saliva stimulated from chewing gum assists in remineralizing tooth enamel and neutralizing plaque acids, both of which aid in fighting cavities.

Dr. Golab stressed the importance of developing healthy habits of prevention through a daily dental hygiene regime to effectively maintain a healthy mouth, and finally, a healthy body. Affecting more than teeth and gums, general health risks have been linked to oral health in patients. Serious health disorders including heart attacks, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, strokes and even certain types of cancer have been linked to bacteria that cause periodontal disease. Prevention and treatment of periodontal disease can impact overall health beyond teeth.
