Your overall health is greatly affected by your oral hygiene. When it isn’t optimal, your body can be negatively impacted by problems with your gums and teeth, a link caused partly by specific oral bacteria as well as factors such as nutrition and genetics.
Science recognizes the vital role that bacteria plays in keeping you healthy, from the skin, to the mucous membranes in your mouth, to the intestines. But it’s all about the proper balance between the good and the bad.
Your mouth is a breeding ground for bacteria that are essentially harmless until a biofilm is allowed to proliferate on the teeth and gums, thereby causing oral infections. Gum disease and tooth decay are two of the most common consequences of
not effectively brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis.
According to numerous studies, uncontrolled growth of oral bacteria combined with inflamed gums may even promote some diseases. In fact, due to research conducted over the last twenty-five years, it is now commonly accepted that there is a link between oral inflammation and clogged arteries, dementia, heart disease and stroke. Those with type 2 diabetes may find it easier to get oral infections due to the disease’s weakening of the immune system.
Current research is investigating how having osteoporosis—systemic loss of bone density causing weak and brittle bones—may provide a host system that is increasingly susceptible to infectious destruction of tooth and bone loss.
To protect your body from oral infections, it is essential to brush and floss your teeth daily and eat healthily, especially when it comes to limiting the amount of sugar and refined carbohydrates in your diet. And you can boost your intake of healthy foods with AIM nutritional supplements, such as BarleyLife for anti-inflammatory, cleansing greens that nurture healthy cells, CellSparc 360 for the coenzyme Q10 that has been shown to help repair gum tissue¹, and CalciAIM for calcium, which helps to protect teeth against
