Is Your Mouth Making You Sick?
Did you know?
Bacteria that builds up between the tooth and gum can enter your bloodstream whenever your gums bleed.
This bacteria can travel throughout your body and may cause health problems.
What can I do?
Brush your teeth twice a day and clean between them daily
Rinse daily with an antibacterial rinse
Avoid using tobacco products
Eat a nutritious, well-balanced diet
Schedule regular check-ups and cleanings
Important to know

Pay attention to your teeth and gums!
