You may already know the importance of taking care of your teeth and gums for your oral health. But did you know that good oral health helps your heart too? We’re sharing a video by the Mayo Clinic that talks about this connection.
A few ways to ensure good heart health through good oral health:
- Practice good oral hygiene.
- Visit the dentist every six months for cleaning and exam.
- Practice good nutrition.
- Pay attention to warning signs of gum disease, like red or swollen gums or bleeding when you brush your teeth.
