Oral Care 101: Brushing Alone Is Not Enough, Says Santé
It’s a given fact: maintaining good personal hygiene is critical to our health and well-being. Among all the hygiene practices that we need to do to stay healthy, we should not forget how important oral hygiene is.
Just like any of our other body parts, your mouth contains plenty of mostly harmless bacteria. However, it is the entry point to your digestive and respiratory organs, which can catch diseases if harmful bacteria enter them.
For Santé, a provider of premier natural and organic health and wellness products and services, oral health is essential to a person’s general health, well-being, and quality of life. Daily brushing and flossing can keep your mouth clean and bacteria under control, enabling you to eat, speak and socialize without pain, discomfort, or embarrassment.
Without proper oral hygiene, high levels of bacteria can lead to oral infections like tooth decay and gum disease, two of the most common oral health diseases among Filipinos. When left untreated, it can bring difficulty in eating, sleeping, and speaking.
According to experts, tooth decay affects about 92.4 percent of Filipinos, with only 1 out of 10 people are willing to visit the dentist, while 78 percent experience gum diseases, with 8 out of 10 suffering from gingivitis or gum swelling. Despite these two oral diseases putting people’s health at risk, it is still easily preventable.
Religiously practicing daily toothbrushing and flossing may not be enough to keep your oral health well. People should also remember that regularly visiting your dentist at least twice a year can help detect and prevent potential oral health problems early.
In addition to toothbrushing daily, using the right toothbrush and toothpaste can massively help with the results. Like Santé’s Fresh and Clean Nano Charcoal Toothbrush, which helps prevent oral diseases through charcoal’s unique benefits, like absorbing toxins in the mouth from consuming specific food and drinks.
With a reliable toothbrush also needs trustworthy toothpaste for better mouth protection, Santé’s Fresh and Clean Natural Toothpaste contains four herbal ingredients:
- Organic barley grass powder for faster healing.
- Aloe vera extract for stronger teeth.
- Tea tree oil to fight unwanted odor-causing bacteria.
- Chamomile extract acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a well-balanced diet can also significantly impact oral health, like minimizing sugary food intake, avoiding tobacco smoking, drugs, and excessive alcohol. However, once you have felt problems in your mouth, it is best to consult with a dentist for early treatment.
An excellent way to start your healthy lifestyle is by taking vitamins like the Santé Daily-C. It contains powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant vitamins that help break down harmful toxins and mucus in the mouth. It also stimulates the natural antimicrobial properties of the immune system, furthering oral protection.
Santé Daily-C, Santé Fresh and Clean Nano Charcoal Toothbrush, and Santé Fresh and Clean Natural Toothpaste are just one of the many other natural health and wellness products offered by Santé. Known for its flagship, Santé Barley™, the company has developed a comprehensive selection of everyday barley-based products. They are made with organic barley grass, as certified by BioGro, New Zealand’s leading organic certification agency.
