Many dental products such as toothpaste and floss stress the benefits your teeth receive from regular cleaning, but oral hygiene affects your overall health as well.

Despite your best efforts, bacteria will settle in your mouth. Without brushing, flossing, and regular dental exams, that bacteria could cause infections such as gum disease. Your gums connect to your bloodstream. When their defenses go down, those bacteria crawl into the bloodstream and hold the potential to cause even bigger problems such as increased risk for heart disease and diabetes.
