What can you do?
Get a Good Dentist - Or, If You Are a Dentist, BE a Good One
One article, which reviewed multiple studies, concluded, “Oral healthcare professionals can identify patients who are unaware of their risk of developing serious complications as a result of CVD [cardiovascular or heart disease] and who are in need of medical intervention.” Your dentist shouldn’t be just a “drill and fill” dentist that keeps recommending the dated “brush and floss” philosophy. That alone doesn’t work anymore. We need better dentists who are not only concerned about your teeth, but also have your overall health in mind. So find yourself a truly good dentist. If you see a dentist and he or she doesn’t mention these risk factors, ask them about it.
Establish Strong Habits ASAP
It is vital that you have healthy habits for your body. Even though brushing and flossing alone aren’t enough, they are still important. To enhance these routines, use an oral irrigator (Water Pik) to better clean in between teeth. For best results, add a couple tablespoons of xylitol to the water in your Pik. And as always, having a good diet and exercising are also invaluable.
Get Your Hands on Spry Products
Spry Proactive Oral Care is the only natural line of oral care products that is also dentist recommended. Each product, whether it is toothpaste, mouthwash, gum, or mints, is innovatively formulated to include the best ingredients to better control and get rid of bad bacteria in the mouth.
