Bad Oral Hygiene Can Impact the Rest of Your Body

OTTAWA, ONTARIO – Every time you visit the dentist your doctor probably nags you about brushing twice a day and flossing daily. While those habits, along with routine cleanings, are key elements to keep your teeth and gums healthy, it has been proven that how well you take care of your mouth could impact your overall health.

“Your mouth is the portal to the rest of your body,” said Dr. Pamela Li, an Ottawa tooth whitening provider. “In fact, some studies suggest there are more bacteria living in your mouth than there are people on the earth. Most of the bacteria are harmless, but if you neglect your oral health the harmful bacteria can quickly multiply and spread.”

Cavities and gum disease may contribute to serious conditions including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory diseases, and premature and low weight babies. Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums, which can also impact the bone supporting the teeth. Plaque is a sticky biofilm of bacteria that builds up, thickens and hardens on the teeth. If it is not removed by daily brushing, it will harden into tartar and infect the gums and bone.
