With more and more evidence that the health of our mouth may effect our over all health, getting your teeth clean and getting rid of plaque from around the gum line becomes even more important than just having a winning smile. A great tool for keeping your mouth clean and healthy is the Waterpik complete care system.
Oral bacteria may harm blood vessels or cause blood clots by releasing toxins that resemble proteins found in artery walls or the bloodstream. The immune system’s response to these toxins could harm vessel walls or make blood clot more easily. It is also possible that inflammation in the mouth revs up inflammation throughout the body, including in the arteries, where it can lead to heart attack and stroke according to the Harvard medical review.
In a recent study out of England, bacteria linked to gum disease has been found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease, suggesting that oral hygiene may be linked to the development of the memory-robbing illness says new British research. This is yet another indication that good dental hygiene can play a key role in warding off this much feared disease that seems to be plaguing more and more elderly individuals. The first studies implicated chronic gum inflammation with a higher risk of dementia. In this research signs of the bacterium, known as Porphyromonas gingivtas, were found in four out of 10 samples of brain tissue from Alzheimer’s patients, while no signs of the bacterium were found in the 10 samples of brains of people of similar age who had not developed the disease.Inflammation caused by gum disease-related bacteria has already been linked to various health problems including diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
So What can you do to keep your teeth and gums healthy? Well brushing and flossing have always been two good old stand bys when it came to cleaning the mouth. But the Waterpik Complete Care takes cleaning your mouth to a whole new level. By combining sonic brush technology with water flossing all in one unit brushing and flossing have never been easier or more effective.
I have been using the Waterpik Complete Care for over 2 years now and my teeth have never been cleaner(even my dentist has noticed the difference). I also find it much more pleasant to brush and floss which has meant that I consistently brush and floss twice a day, which hasn’t always been the case. I love the fact that my teeth feel smooth and clean and I have far less “pink in the sink” during my oral care. I have also found that getting in and around my bridge far easier with far less crud getting stuck under it.
