Looking after your teeth and gums is not only beneficial for your appearance but also for your overall health. Not taking proper dental care can lead to gum disease which can be a factor in causing diseases such as heart trouble and diabetes.
Proper dental care should be part of a daily routine and is as simple as:
– Brushing teeth at least twice daily
– Replacing the toothbrush every two months
– Scheduling regular check-ups at the dentist
It is also advisable to “quit smoking and using tobacco products” although this can be difficult without professional help. A full article on improving overall health through proper dental care can be read at https://healthyone.org/the-connection-between-oral-health-and-optimal-health/
