Oral Hygiene and Overall Health

As we’ve discussed with patients during visits, oral health is important for good overall health.  An article from Everyday Health titled “Oral Hygiene and Overall Health” talks about this link.  The article discusses things that can negatively impact the health of your mouth, such as having a diet high in sugars, smoking, drinking, and taking certain medications.  Taking good care of your mouth at home with regular brushing and flossing, coupled with regular checkups with your dentist, can help maintain a healthy mouth.  And, a healthy mouth helps maintain a healthy body.
