Why Oral Health Is Important for Your Overall Health
Taking care of your teeth, gums and mouth is great for your smile and oral health, but did you know it can also benefit your overall health? Maintaining a consistent oral hygiene routine can help prevent not only bad breath, gum disease and tooth decay, but it can also put you at a reduced risk for certain cardiovascular problems too.

How Oral Health And Overall Health Are Connected
Staying healthy and sanitary is something that’s on everyone’s mind this year. Oral health is more important than ever if you want to stay in good health! Remember, every part of our body works together in harmy to keep things functioning the way nature intended.
Research shows that poor oral hygiene can lead to an increased risk of cardiovascular problems such as blood clots, heart attack and stroke. On top of this, Harvard Health Publishing posted that “studies have linked periodontal disease (especially if due to infection with a bacterium called porphyromonas gingivalis) and rheumatoid arthritis.”
