Poor dental health associated with other serious health risks
from American Council on Science and Health
It's been established that poor dental hygiene has been linked to, or associated with, a range of health problems, some of them serious. And what many people fail to realize is that they can improve their chances of staying in good health if they simply made sure to take good care of their teeth. The reason is that your mouth is a repository of bacteria. And when you brush, and floss, and go to the dentist for a cleaning, with the help of your saliva you're clearing these out. Dental experts say that over 500 bacterial species are present in plaque, found below the gum line.
