Checking your teeth for tooth decay is just one part of a thorough dental examination.

A lot of Iranian dentists also examine your face, bite, saliva and movement of your lower jaw joints. Many Persian dentists will pay special attention to plaque and tartar. This is because plaque and tartar can build up in a very short amount of time if good oral hygiene is not practiced between visits. Food, beverages and tobacco can stain teeth as well. If not removed, soft plaque can harden on the teeth and irritate the gum tissue. If not treated, plaque can lead to gum disease.

The condition of your mouth is closely tied to your overall physical health. Taking care of your teeth isn't just about having a nice smile and pleasant breath. Recent research has found a number of links between oral health and overall health. The condition of your mouth is closely tied to your overall physical health.

  2. Floss between your teeth every day.
  3. Visit a dentist regularly for a checkup and cleaning.
  4. Cut down on sugary foods and drinks.
