Everything from brushing and flossing to visiting the dentist regularly will help you to have healthy teeth. It’s important that we take care of our teeth to avoid things such as gum disease and the chance of loosing teeth. But were you aware that having a healthy set of teeth and mouth helps us avoid issues such as; kidney problems, stroke, heart disease, lung infections and diabetes?
There is so much relying on us having healthy teeth. Here are some more reasons why regular dental care is essential.
Prevention is definitely cheaper than the cure for your teeth. Taking care of your mouth daily will make sure that you have fewer problems in the future and make sure you have less to pay for treatment.
If you fail to clean your teeth regularly then it will of course start to smell. You should clean your teeth at least twice a day.
No one really wants to kiss someone with food in their teeth or with very bad breath. If you brush and floss it is the best way to remove any food and keep your breath fresh, it’s also the cheapest method too.
Stop Gum Disease
Your gums can become inflamed if there is a build up of plaque around your teeth. This will lead to your gums becoming swollen and your teeth may bleed when they are brushed. Plaque occurs when both bacteria and food build up in the mouth, so it needs to be cleaned regularly to avoid any gum issues.
Lower the chance of stroke and heart attack
If you have a lot of bacteria in your mouth it can easily make its way into the rest of your body via your bloodstream, this increases the chances of heart attack and also stroke.
Studies have shown that gum disease will increase the chances of a mother giving birth prematurely and also the baby having a low birth weight. It also can be the cause of delayed conception and in some cases impotence. So make sure your gums and teeth are super healthy for your next generation.
