Healthy Mouth Equals Healthy Body

Your mother making you wash out your mouth with a bar of soap as a child may have been helpful in more ways than one. Doctors are beginning to realize that the condition of a patient’s gums, teeth and mouth is an important indicator of overall health, because the mouth can be the gateway for bacteria to cause problems in other parts of the body.

Certain diseases you contract as you age may originate in the mouth as bacteria in your saliva slips into your blood stream. Heart disease, arthritis and diabetes have all been linked to bacterial infections in the mouth, so heed your doctors warnings and take care of your dental health.
