Why Keep Your Oral Health In Good Shape?

For the same reason you want to keep all of your systems in great shape – to lead a healthy, happy life. There are many people who don’t understand how important having great oral health can be. Of those people, there are a select few who choose to completely drop great dental hygiene habits. We’re unsure of why this happens, but it’s a bad decision to make. If you like living a healthy and happy life, then keeping your oral health intact is a wise decision.

Consider the alternative for just a moment. Let’s say there’s something in your mouth that is causing problems but you’re unsure of what it is. If you’re like one of those select few who choose not to do anything about it, you’re basically inviting disease and infection to overtake your mouth. This same infection or disease can lead to many health problems. Don’t believe us?

Below are the most common ailments experienced when oral health lacking:

  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Low-birth weight
  • Cancer

Tobacco – The Ultimate Oral Health Destroyer

Tobacco is an enemy of oral health, plain and simple. Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the last couple decades, tobacco use has increased the amount of lung-cancer cases. On the oral health side of things, it can help develop oral cancer, cavities, teeth staining and more. Halitosis, or bad breath, is one of the most common results of repeated tobacco use. You don’t want to smell like an ashtray, right? Surely you wouldn’t want your teeth to look like one either.
