Not Flossing Can Result in Heart Problems Over Time

Posted on 6/7/2021 by office
Who would think that neglecting to floss could affect the health of your heart? However, this can happen over time if you do not regularly floss your teeth. Why You Need to Floss to Prevent Problems with the Heart Flossing gets rid of the plaque and debris between the teeth that lead to bad breath and gum disease. If you don't make it a habit to floss at least once a day, you can experience problems with gum infections and ultimately develop heart issues as well. That is because the gum disease, gingivitis can turn into periodontitis, an advanced gum infection. Periodontitis causes the gum to pull away from the teeth, which permits the bad bacteria in the mouth to get below the gum line and destroy the soft tissues and bone. Why Failing to Floss Leads to Heart Ailments When you fail to floss and develop advanced gum disease, the infection can spread, because it enters the bloodstream. When this occurs, the germs can enter the heart muscle and can affect your respiratory tract as well. In fact, studies show that heart patients often have some form of gum disease when they are diagnosed. Make Flossing a Priority Along with brushing your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes at a time, you also need to floss your teeth. To do this, you need to commit yourself to the activity of flossing. Usually, you will have more time in the evening, so floss before you brush your teeth and turn in for the evening. You only need to floss for 2 minutes, once a day, to enjoy better oral health and experience enhanced health overall. Do you need treatment for gum disease? If so, we can help you reverse early gum disease or support your periodontal needs for eliminating advanced gum disease. Give us a call today to improve your dental health and overall well-being....
