Does oral health predict overall health?
from Greatist.com via Health
Upwards of 6 billion bacteria live inside the average human mouth. The wrong buildup of microorganisms in the mouth can lead to infections, tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. Oral bacteria can also travel into the blood stream, causing or contributing to an array of diseases that affect more than just that smile. Regular dental upkeep — flossing, brushing, mouthwashing, waterpicking, and chewing sugar-free gum — keeps these bad boys under control.
