There is an undeniable link between oral health and your general health.
Gum disease (periodontitis) in particular, is an inflammatory condition which can contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and having pre-term low birthweight babies.
Furthermore, any infections that develop in the mouth can travel to other parts of the body and cause severe generalized infections.
Therefore, Drs. Fox and Cool recommends that you maintain a consistent oral hygiene and care routine as part of a healthy lifestyle.
