Having a healthy body starts from the inside, what you put into your mouth and how your oral care go will affect your body health as a whole.
We love eating and that is already given, whether just the need to survive or to satisfy our cravings. But never forget to take care of your mouth by brushing and flossing your teeth and scraping the tongue (as bacterias can hide beneath that cause bad breath) afterwards. Here’s why:
To understand how the mouth can affect the body, it helps to understand what can go wrong in the first place. Bacteria that builds up on teeth make gums prone to infection. The immune system moves in to attack the infection and the gums become inflamed. The inflammation continues unless the infection is brought under control.
Over time, inflammation and the chemicals it releases eat away at the gums and bone structure that hold teeth in place. The result is severe gum disease, known as periodontitis. Inflammation can also cause problems in the rest of the body. (source: http://www.webmd.com/oral-health/features/oral-health-the-mouth-body-connection)
Additional oral care is by gargling with mouthwash like Swish mouthwash, this is very useful if you are out of the house and need a quick fix to freshen your breath and at the same time killing germs and preventing bacterias from producing. If you are sensitive with alcohol, this is good for you since it’s alcohol-free there’s no tingling sensation when you gargle, just the fresh and cool feeling. It also has three flavors, the Peppermint fresh, Mangosteen mint, and Arctic chill.
For easy-to-carry and instant fresh breath after eating or smoking, there’s the Swish breath spray, it’s also alcohol-free and sugar-free.
