Maintaining a healthy mouth isn’t just important to keep your teeth and gums in good working order, but in truth your oral health can also act as a window to your overall well-being – neglecting it can increase your chances of developing many other diseases.
Like many areas of the body, the mouth is full of bacteria — most of which are harmless. The body’s natural defences and good oral health care, such as daily brushing, can usually keep the bacteria under control. Without proper oral hygiene however, bacteria can reach dangerous levels that might overflow into oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease.
In fact, gum disease may increase your risk of all kinds of other health complications like osteoporosis, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, including endocarditis, the often fatal infection of the heart lining. Gum disease has even been linked to complications during pregnancy and even the progression of dementia. Good oral health is not only about regular brushing and flossing but it is also about knowing which mainstream dental practices to avoid, including unnecessary procedures and costly therapies.
In addition, certain medications such as antihistamines, antidepressants or painkillers can reduce saliva flow in the mouth. Saliva washes away food and neutralises the acids produced by oral bacteria, helping to protect you from the microbial overgrowth that could lead to disease.
The worry of maintaining good oral hygiene will trouble you no longer. We at the Daily Health will show you which vitamins and minerals can help reverse gum disease and the truth behind fluoride use, to name just two of the multitude of articles at your disposal.
The Daily Health will offer you all the handy tips and essential information on how you can keep your oral health in top shape and in turn stop it from draining away your overall well-being.
