Why A Healthy Mouth Will Help Protect You
How good oral health lessens symptoms of illness
When you brush and floss, you’re removing harmful bacteria from your teeth and gums – that’s pretty basic stuff that you already know. But when that bacteria remains in your mouth, it will attack your teeth and your gums, leading to decay and gum disease.
When gum disease is present, you may experience swelling (inflammation) and this allows oral bacteria to enter your bloodstream and reach other parts of your body. As your body fights the bacteria, it can lead to a chronic inflammatory condition. If your body is continually fighting inflammation, your immune system will become depleted, leaving you more susceptible to disease.
Therefore, it’s critical to ensure your recare and dental treatments are regular and uninterrupted. If you’ve missed your recall, let’s get back on track. Call today!
