Did you know that the bacteria found in your mouth can gain access to your bloodstream? The bacteria associated with gum disease has been shown to increase the risk of other health issues such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and complications with pregnancy. To help prevent gum disease it is important to brush your teeth twice a day, clean between your teeth once a day by flossing, and visit your dental hygienist for regular professional cleanings.
