Oral Hygiene Affects Your Overall Health

 How well you care for your teeth and gums has a powerful effect on your overall health. Neglecting your oral health leads to more than just sore teeth and bad breath — it can open the door to all sorts of health problems, including some pretty nasty diseases like oral cancer. 

 
Researchers know there's a synergic relationship between oral health and overall wellness. Gum disease is linked to a host of illnesses including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. By combing through 1,000-plus medical histories, researchers found that people with gum disease were twice as likely as others to die from a heart attack and three times as likely to have a stroke.
 
One cannot be healthy with an unhealthy mouth any more than one can be healthy with an infected foot. Gum disease is the most common chronic inflammatory condition in the world, yet it's often a silent disease. Why? The mouth can act as a portal of entry for an infection, says Salomon Amar, DMD, PhD, professor and director at the Center for Anti-inflammatory Therapeutics at Boston University School of Dental Medicine. Ongoing inflammation in your mouth can allow bacteria to enter the bloodstream, which may lead to more inflammation in other parts of your body, such as the heart.
 
Some studies point to a reciprocal relationship between gum disease and diabetes. When you treat and control diabetes, immediately the condition in the mouth improves. And when you treat periodontal disease, the need for insulin is reduced.
 
To maintain your oral health — and overall good health — you should see your dentist regularly to head off any problems early. You should also practice good oral hygiene at home by carefully cleaning your teeth regularly without cleaning teeth equipments at the dentist's in order to prevent plaque from accumulating and causing problems. There is nothing a dentist can do that a patient can’t undo by neglecting their dental care.
