Many people believe that they oral and cardiac health are not related. They are wrong. If bacteria cause an infection in your gums, they can cause inflammation throughout the body within the lining of the arteries as well. This increases our risks of heart attack, stroke, and cancer. It is very important to prevent gingivitis by flossing and using a toothpaste validated by the FDA.
- Many do not even know they have it because of initial absence of pain and swelling. This, however, does not mean it is not preventable.
- The basic step is obviously to avoid the causes of gingivitis. To the usual 4-steps popularly recommended dental routine, I would add a very fundamental one: tongue-scraping.
- How vital one considers oral and dental health is a reflection of the person’s wisdom, personality, social nature, behavior, habit, lifestyle in general, and outlook.
"Gingivitis is very common. About 80 percent of adults will have some form of gingivitis, varying degree of severity, during their lifetime."
