Oral Health & Your Body

The Importance of Better Oral Health to Your Total Health 

 

Oral Health and Total Health
Researchers have found that gum disease is linked with other health problems. Gum disease ranges from a mild type known as gingivitis to the more serious type called periodontitis.

The mouth can offer clues about overall health, and problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body.

Research compiled over the years suggest that gum diseases - if persist long without treatment - is related to these variety of conditions:

Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common manifestation of elderly dementia. People with poor oral hygiene or gum disease may be at a greater risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Arthritis

Studies indicate that people with periodontal disease have an increased prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA is an autoimmune disorder that typically affects the small joints.

Cancer

Periodontal disease has been associated with an increase in overall cancer risk. Researchers consider infections, such as periodontitis, and the body’s inflammatory response as potential cancer triggers.

Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease that can lower the body’s resistance to infection. Periodontitis is an infection in your gums, which can result in higher blood sugar levels and more challenges with controlling the disease.

Heart and Stroke

Studies have shown that periodontal disease is associated with heart disease. While gum disease and heart disease share common risk factors such as smoking and diabetes, in many studies the association appears to exist independent of these factors.

Pregnancy and Birth

Periodontal disease has been associated with an increase in overall cancer risk. Researchers consider infections, such as periodontitis, and the body’s inflammatory response as potential cancer triggers.

Enjoy Better Oral Health

Good dental care is a must for maintaining healthy gums, protecting teeth, and reducing the risk of gum disease. The plaque that forms in your mouth every day is home to thousands of bacteria.

When you don’t remove plaque during tooth brushing or cleaning between your teeth, the bacteria become more infectious and are likely to cause gum disease.

Dental work, orthodontic braces, certain medical conditions, and other factors can make maintaining good dental care challenging.

Even though most of us brush our teeth, up to 85% of adult Singaporeans* examined displayed mild to moderately severe form of gum disease, which is a root cause of bad breath and tooth loss.


To help prevent gum disease, dental professionals tell us to floss daily. But many of us don’t because string floss is difficult and time consuming to use.

That's why WaterPik created the Water Flosser - an Easy and More Effective Way to Floss!


Easy. Just point the flosser tip between your teeth and along the gumline, and let it do all the work for you.

Fast. Water Flossing takes only a minute a day, making it easy to improve your oral health and enjoy the cleanest, freshest mouth possible.

Effective. The Waterpik® Water Flosser removes the plaque and debris lurking deep between teeth and below the gumline, where it’s hard to reach with traditional brushing and flossing.

 

The results are clinically proven - Water Flossing is up to 50% more effective than string floss and up to 80% more effective than Sonicare® Air Floss (model HX8181) for improving gum health.
