Now more than ever, it is crucial to have a healthy smile! Our teeth have such an important role to play in our lives. They help us chew and digest food, they help us talk and speak clearly, and they also give our face its shape. A healthy smile can truly transform our visual appearance, the positivity of our mind-set, and improve the health of our mouth and body.

Keep your teeth healthy by brushing, flossing, and using Listerine at least two times a day. By doing this will reduce the risk of dental decay and gum disease. The goal is to keep as many as your original teeth to help us live longer lives.

Not only living longer but also reducing the risk of diseases. When you have gum disease that bacteria can get into your bloodstream. That bacteria can affect your heart and stroke conditions. New research has also shown that we are more likely to develop diabetes if we have gum disease.

Keep your teeth healthy also reduces the risk of cancer and dementia.

New research, which examined data from 65,000 post-menopausal women between the ages of 54 and 86, found those with a history of gum disease were 14% more likely to develop cancer. Of these, one in three developed breast cancer while there was also a highly-increased risk of lung cancer, oesophageal, gall bladder, and skin cancers.

Those who have healthy gums are also 70 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than those who have suffered from gum disease over a long period of time.

Keep your teeth healthy also can determine if you are pregnant to go to a full term with your baby because gum disease raises the levels of the chemicals that bring on labor.

Keep your teeth healthy can keep yours from having bad breath and stained teeth. No one wants to feel self-conscious by talking or smiling.
