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:
Pregnancy and premature birth
