It is vitally important to keep your gums, teeth and whole mouth in the best possible condition to enable a lifetime of good oral health, free from pain, decay and disease. How to achieve this is a combination of good hygiene practices and good nutrition. There is a wealth of information to absorb from articles, books, DVDs, research studies and anecdotal sources. One should equip oneself with as much knowledge as possible to gain a good understanding of human oral health requirements and processes to personally achieve exceptional oral health standards. Whilst some literature may advocate the use of animal based products, which is not acceptable to vegans, it is still worth reading for the other informative aspects and to find one’s own acceptable sources of key nutrients.
