Science-based evidence confirms that your oral health is connected to many other health conditions. The mouth is a normal and natural breeding ground for bacteria. If left unattended, harmful bacteria can grow out of control and lead to gum disease, which in turn releases bacteria into your bloodstream.
This may trigger many other problems in the body such as:
- Heart Disease
- Lower Birth Weight
- Premature Babies
- Oral Cancer
You can control bacteria and keep your gums healthy with brushing, flossing and regular dental visits. In addition, good oral care protects natural tooth structure by preserving the bone around your teeth, keeping your teeth strong and preventing unnecessary tooth loss.
