Do you suffer from poor dental health?
Why do I ask?
Perhaps it’s because our teeth have a vital job to do each and every day of our lives. For starters, we would really struggle to chew and digest our food, without a good set of teeth.
Our teeth also help us speak clearly, and they are a big part of a cracking smile.
Put it this way, how do you feel when you meet someone for the first time with a mouth full of dirty yellow gravestones?
You’re not going to think very highly of them, right?
In contrast, a gleaming smile, projecting a set of healthy teeth has numerous benefits.
For example, I’m sure you’d have a lot more confidence on a first date, an interview for an important new position, or meeting your significant other’s parents for the first time, with a great set of teeth.
Again, on the flip side, those 3 situations above would be terrifyingly awkward if you knew your teeth were tobacco-stained…
You had two front teeth missing…
And the rest were all crooked, and looked like you could drive an 18-wheeler truck between some of them.
Because of these reasons, it only makes sense to give our oral health the best care possible.
But the sad fact is 46% of all adults aged 30 years or older show signs of gum disease.
Plus, severe gum disease affects about 9% of these adults.
So, I hope this blog post helps you take a look at your oral health, and helps you learn more about why a healthy smile is so important.
Especially for guys our age.
In a minute, I’ll be sharing a link with some tips on how to improve and maintain your teeth.
The truth is a healthy set of teeth, and your accompanying smile can totally transform your visual appearance.
I’d even go as far as to say your whole mindset gets a boost when you know your teeth are looking healthy and movie-star like…
Here are a few more reminders about good oral health:
- You know you should brush your teeth at least two times a day, do you do that?
- You know you should follow a diet low-in-sugar, do you do that?
- You know you should visit the dentist every six months, even just for a check-up and cleaning, do you do that?
Judging by the statistics, it’s clear to say, not everyone follows the 3 tips I just mentioned.
In fact, 26% of American adults have untreated tooth decay. And I bet the Brits don’t fare much better.
How to reduce the risk of disease and prevent poor dental health?
When we have gum disease, the bacteria from our mouth can get into the bloodstream.
It then produces a protein that causes the blood to thicken. This means that clots are more likely to form, and the heart is not getting the nutrients and oxygen it needs, resulting in an increased risk of a heart attack.
Similarly, gum disease can also cause inflammation of the blood vessels, blocking the blood supply to the brain, leading to a potential stroke.
New research has also shown that we’re more likely to develop diabetes if we have gum disease.
In contrast, those of us who have healthy gums are 70 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than those who have suffered from gum disease over a long period of time.
