How Does Poor Dental Hygiene Impact Health?

Your oral health directly impacts your overall well-being. Neglecting proper dental care can lead to severe complications:

  • Respiratory Issues: Oral bacterial infections can spread to the bloodstream, potentially reaching the lungs and raising the likelihood of bronchitis or pneumonia.
  • Cancer Risk: Gum disease is associated with higher kidney, pancreas, and blood cancer development chances.

How to Properly Brush & Floss

Regular brushing and flossing are essential for oral hygiene. Professional cleanings remove plaque, tartar, and debris, while at-home care is crucial for maintaining mouth health, enhancing your smile, and preventing disease.

Oral Hygiene Aids

Regular dental check-ups are vital for preserving optimal oral health and identifying potential issues early on. However, they’re just one part of the equation. Consistent oral hygiene habits at home are equally crucial in preventing future dental issues.


Sealants, thin plastic coatings applied to molars, premolars, and deep grooves, prevent dental decay by forming a smooth, easy-to-clean surface.
