Don’t forget to floss.
When left to their own devices, the bacteria hiding between your teeth will infect your gums and enter your bloodstream, where they can cause inflammation in your arteries and contribute to plaque buildup on blood vessel walls. Recent studies have linked gum disease to other problems, too, ranging from respiratory infections to neurodegeneration.
Proper flossing technique is important too so please do not hesitate to ask our hygienist Amanda or Dr. Baird if you would like a refresher.
We hope you can add some of these tips to your daily life!
