A Healthy Body Starts With A Healthy Mouth

Posted by Dr. Dadseresht on Jul 20 2020, 10:56 PM

Did you know that your overall immunity is affected by your oral hygiene?


Because of the spread of Coronavirus, most people are interested in learning how to reduce their risk of disease and infection. It is most commonly recommended to social distance, wash your hands, and to wear a mask when out in public. While all of these are relevant, it is also important to recognize the effects of oral hygiene to your overall immunity.


Your mouth is the first point of contact into your digestive system. Without daily brushing and flossing, the regular bacteria in your mouth  can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. If left untreated, these maladies could lead to additional serious health concerns such as endocarditis,  cardiovascular disease, and pneumonia.  


The best line of defense in boosting your immunity is prevention. It is best to brush and floss your teeth twice a day. 


It is also important to replace your toothbrush regularly to avoid the influence and growth of additional bacteria. You can create your own disinfectant solution at home by mixing hydrogen peroxide and water to rinse your toothbrush after each use.


It is never too late to take action and prevent negative effects. Learn more about oral hygiene byreading this article on Mayo Clinic. It is also recommended to visit your dentist for a professional cleaning approximately every 6 months.
