Oral Health is very important for our general health.  Did you know that your oral health can lead to problems with your overall health? Let us explain the connection between oral health and general health.

The connection between oral health and overall health

Normal daily brushing and flossing can keep good bacteria under control. Bad bacteria can get out of control and cause tooth decay and gum disease, which we call oral infections.  This can cause disruption in the protective layer that could make it easier for bacteria to enter the bloodstream.

Many conditions could be linked to Oral health such as:

  • Cardiovascular disease

  • Endocarditis

  • Pregnancy and premature birth

  • Diabetes

  • HIV/Aids

  • Alzheimers Disease

  • Osteoporosis

  • And many other conditions

At PGA Center for Advanced Dentistry, we recommend you to protect your Oral Health by following this protocol

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day

  • Floss daily

  • Replace your toothbrush every 3 months

  • Eat a healthy diet and limit your sugar intake

Schedule regular checkups with your Dentist and Dental Hygienist at PGA Center for advanced dentistry
