Good Dental Health Contributes to Overall Health

14 October 2013


Believe it or not, brushing your teeth is one of the simplest ways to help maintain your overall health.

This is because dental health is more connected to overall health than most people realise. In fact, doctors and scientists continue to find associations between oral disease and other diseases. Some researchers think that bacteria in the mouth - when they build up and cause inflammation and infection - can contribute to an increased risk of illness or disease elsewhere in the body.

When you have clean teeth and healthy gums,  there are fewer bad bacteria to enter your bloodstream and travel to other parts of your body.

You can help protect and promote your overall health by maintaining good dental health. Brush your teeth twice daily and f loss at least once daily.

These days there are many products to help you maintain clean teeth and gums, so there is no excuse to avoid good dental care. Don't neglect your oral health, if your teeth or gums are sensitive or bleeding arrange a preventive care appointment as soon as possible.
