Help avoid heart disease, brush regularly
If one of your New Year resolutions is to live healthy – then taking care of your teeth is an easy start that will massively benefit your overall health.
Research has linked bacteria in gum disease to:
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Oral cancer
- Alzheimer’s disease
The reality is that cavities are not the ogres of modern dentistry. Gum disease is the single biggest cause of tooth loss in our times.
It may also surprise you to know that when natural tooth roots are missing from the jaw through tooth loss, the bone shrinks. This may cause changes in your facial appearance; skin wrinkling and a sunken-looking mouth.
Make it a resolution to:
- Brush twice a day
- Floss once a day
- Have a dental check-up twice a year
Fortunately, today’s dentistry offers options in tooth replacement that are stable, attractive, and comfortable. They can restore your appearance, chewing strength and stability, and confidence in speaking and laughing.
