Oral Health and Longevity
Our team at Fashion Isle Smiles would like to share with you some evidence-based dental health advice that could change your life. While merely living longer isn’t necessarily a good thing, living better during those extra years is. Fortunately, improving your oral hygiene will not just extend your life, but will improve the quality of your life. Research has demonstrated that people with good oral hygiene live seven years longer than those with poor oral hygiene. Your mouth is connected to every system in your body and the condition of your mouth can impact the function of your lungs, heart and brain. The environment in your mouth can even alter levels of toxicity and inflammation throughout your body.
Maintaining a clean mouth can:
- Decrease the levels of toxicity and inflammation throughout your body
- Decrease the inflammatory load on your heart and cardiovascular system
- Protect against dementia
- Improve the health of your pregnancy and your baby
While this may sound like the same ol’ same ol’ message from the dentist, science tells us that you need to brush and floss your teeth daily and scrape or brush your tongue to help reduce oral bacteria. Some evidence also indicates that consuming a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, low-fat dairy, and fatty fish promote a low-acid and anti-inflammatory oral environment. Of course, it is also very important to see your dentist for regular teeth cleanings. Live out your many years to the fullest with a clean, bright, happy smile!
