Brush your teeth regularly to thwart the risk of heart diseases


The fact that an unhealthy mouth indicates an unhealthy body is so very true. Losing your teeth is not the only eventuality associated with gum disease and other dental afflictions. Experts claim that it specifically puts you to the risk of heart diseases. “Brushing and flossing your teeth could save you from a heart attack. Doctors found that those with the worst blockages in their arteries had the most severe gum disease. It is thought that bacteria released from the infected gums are the key, which enter the bloodstream where they may activate the immune system, making artery walls inflamed and narrowed.”flossing teeth

Improper dental hygiene over the years also decreases your jaw structure and makes you look aged beyond years. So maintaining good oral hygiene at home by paying more attention to brushing and flossing, together with periodic visits to the dentist for cleaning is a must. This will not only prevent unpleasant oral conditions and decrease the risk of heart diseases but is also good for your general well-being.

  1. This is absolutely true...the mouth is a window / mirror of the body...poor oral health is often interrelated or a reflection of conditions. There have been significant studies showing the increased incidence of major systemic problems in people with poor oral health.

    Not brushing your teeth will result in horrendously bad breath. People will not talk with you because they cannot bear the bad odor of your breath. This problem can be eliminated by brushing your teeth regularly.

    Not brushing your teeth affects your taste buds too. Plaque and bacteria, that buildup constantly, can damage your taste buds if not removed from time to time. In order to enjoy your food, you must keep your teeth and tongue clean and healthy.

    First soak your toothbrush in hot water. Then rinse your mouth with mouthwash. After you put the toothpaste on your brush, brush your teeth. Rinse well after brushing.

    Before brushing, rinse the mouth with either mouthwash or hydrogen peroxide (do not swallow) for about 45 seconds. Apply a small amount of toothpaste to your toothbrush. Sprinkle some baking soda onto the toothpaste. Brush for about 3 minutes. Rinse with peroxide for about 30 seconds. Rinse again with water. You will notice a significant change in about 2 weeks.

    First floss, this removes any plaque from between your teeth. Then rinse, use something like Listerine. Finally brush with a fluoride toothpaste. If you rinse after you brush, the fluoride gets washed away.

    Antimicrobial mouth rinses can help reduce bacteria in the mouth, while also working to fight gum disease. Look for the non-alcohol variety, as alcohol can actually dry out the gums, causing irritation. Alcohol also deposits pigment onto teeth, which can inhibit the whitening process.
