Your Dental and Overall Health

Posted May 10th, 2012 in Health News

Your dental health does not only affect your appearance and sense of well being; it effects your overall health. Gum disease and cavities are contributing factors towards many serious health conditions diabetes and respiratory diseases.

Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums, this can also effect the bone that is supporting the tooth. This is caused by the hardening and constant build up of plaque. If this plaque is not removed then the plaque can travel from the mouth to the lungs causing infection or aggravating any existing lung problems.

Some ways of minimizing your risk:

  • Brush and floss daily
  • visit your dentist regularly
  • try to maintain a health diet.
