The hygiene of the mouth and teeth is key to longevity and good health…really!
How to keep good oral health?
3 principles to keep good teeth and a good mouth.
- Brushing: At least twice daily. Right up to the gum & to the end of the teeth. Finish by flossing.
- Visit the dentist: Even if one did not hurt, a regular visit removes plaque. Two scaling sessions are very much recommended a year.
- Food: Eat only whole food where possible…so no sugar and other forms of shit!
How to contain the periodontal disease?
The periodontal diseases affect the tooth-supporting tissues:
- Ligament (connecting the tooth to the bone)
- Roof (thin layer of the root surface)
Gingivitis, reported by bleeding when brushing, redness and painful swelling of the gums. Bacterial plaque is visible under consideration.
Easily treated if taken in time, they degenerate otherwise.
Periodontitis: loss of attachment of the gums around the tooth. Bacteria colonize the space between the tooth and the gum.
Only a suitable treatment prevents loosening and loss of the tooth. Consult a dentist.
These diseases come from:
- the presence of pathogenic bacteria,
- lack of protective bacteria in the oral flora,
- weak immune response,
- stress, allergies,
- cardiovascular disease
- poor dental hygiene,
- factors genetic,
- certain viral infections,
Oral health and overall health: the links?
They are closely related.
The mouth is part of the body. The mouth diseases caused by poor hygiene or an imbalance of the oral flora due to disease, drugs or risky behavior (smoking, alcohol).
General complications can happen: endocarditis (infection of the heart damage), nephritis (kidney infection), facial pain (shooting pain at the front), rheumatic fever, sinusitis …
The doctor / dentist relationship is very important.
Between the two practitioners, information must flow.
Under nutrition of an elderly person, endocarditis infection, for example should prompt the doctor to alert the dentist.
Bad breath is usually caused by poor hygiene.
But it may also be a sign of periodontal disease, the tissues that support the teeth.
You should brush the gums even and especially if they are clean already. 7% of cancers affect the mouth and structures.
Solid food is no longer possible, brushing is more important (teeth or prosthesis) .It is necessary to see a dentist even when wearing a prosthesis.
So what the hell am I on about here!?
Basically, it seems that the connection between oral health and general health is very closely related.
So what is my parting message to you…Go and get a dental check up I guess, what am I? Your mother!!!
