They say an apple a day keeps your doctor away, but what about your dentist?
Unfortunately, there’s no magical fruit that can keep your mouth healthy (and your dentist happy!)
The reality is that practicing good oral health takes effort. But, this effort is worth it!
That’s because, nearly every day, new studies come out linking your oral health to your body’s overall health.
Whether it’s the relationship between gum health and heart function or the detection of disease through oral symptoms,it’s clear that oral health impacts more than just your mouth. It impacts how healthy you are from head to toe.
Here are some quick tips to help you stay on top of your oral health, and in turn your overall health:
- A dental examination can reveal initial signs of systemic diseases and nutritional deficiencies. So, schedule regular checkups with your dentist!
- Don’t settle for one-size-fits-all oral care— consider using oral care customized to your unique needs.
- Take the time to read the ingredients of your personal care products and, with the help of a dental professional, decide what’s best for you and your body.
