Good Dental Habits Key to Healthy Teeth

Good Dental Habits Key to Healthy Teeth

You have only your dental habits to blame if your teeth aren't as healthy as you would like them. A study published in 2004 in the Journal of Dental Research found that people who smoked, who did not brush their teeth or who did not see a dentist routinely were more likely to have dental problems. Smoking can lead to poor dental health because smoking restricts the amount of blood flowing to the gums.
