Your general health is affected when you have oral infections

Why is it important to treat oral infections?

Because a number of associated conditions can be created such as: diabetes, bacterial endocarditis, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, respiratory diseases, chronic lung infections, osteoporosis, premature birth, low birth weight, newborns, perimplantitis, end infections , diseases of the skin, tissue and mucous membranes.

All this may be due to the lack of oral hygiene at home and in the office, in time and less to the genetic predisposition.

Oral inflammation and associated conditions

You should know that in the oral cavity you can have between 600 - 1000 species of bacteria. Some of these bacteria are needed because the body's infections occur. But people who don't brush their teeth or don't do their hygiene on time can have over 100 million bacteria on every surface of a tooth.

The high number of bacteria in the oral cavity causes cavities and their complications, gingivitis and periodontitis (disease of the gums and bone that supports the teeth) as well as other associated diseases mentioned above.

Periodontitis, also called the "silent killer", is an outbreak that can slowly cause long-term health problems.

If the harmful bacteria are not removed in time, the immune system will be irreversibly affected and thus chronic diseases appear.

That is why it is essential to brush your teeth twice a day, especially in the evening carefully. In addition to the toothbrush, it also uses interdental floss, the buccal irrigator (or interdental toothbrush) because between the teeth remain those food residues that if not removed in time will create deposits of tartar (colonies of solidified bacteria), demineralizations that lead to caries and gum disease.

I hope today that you become more perseverant in your oral care at home and do not forget that the distant tartar creates unpleasant odors, cavities, gingival inflammation and distant diseases.

Prioritize oral care for your health and your pocket!

With oral health and prevention,
