Chances are we will all make significant investments in our lifetime. From buying stocks to a new car or investing in your own home, some investments pay off bigtime, while others are simply necessary to live life in the modern world.
But one investment many people don’t consider is the investment in your oral health. Maybe it’s because we often put ourselves last, or maybe it’s because we simply don’t think we have the time or money – or even realize how important the mouth is to total body health. But whatever the reason stopping you from investing in yourself, it’s time to reconsider this decision.
It’s Not Just Your Smile
It’s a common thought to think that your smile is a frivolous use of your money- after all you are the only one benefitting from the investment, right? It doesn’t help your kids, your spouse or your community when your teeth look good – or does it? In some ways, it actually does.
By now you may know that the mouth is an important part of your total health. The mouth is the gateway to your body, and lets in good and bad foods and good and bad bacteria to your bloodstream. This bacteria can help you by reducing your risk of cavities, and bad bacteria can cause major illnesses like diabetes, psoriasis, heart disease and stroke. It can even worsen diabetes symptoms- and then there’s the cavities, gum disease and bad breath. Imagine what having these issues would do to your family!
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way. There are ways to prevent these illnesses that are easier than you think! Caring for your oral health is a fast and easy way to ensure that your total body health and well-being has the best shot at remaining at optimum levels for as long as possible. That’s because the better care you take of your mouth, the better off the rest of you will be. This means brushing for at least two minutes at a time, twice a day, and flossing at least once a day. This whole routine will take about five minutes. Five minutes! That’s all you need to reduce your risk of a long list of serious ailments that could prove to be fatal.
A full mouth restoration can help you achieve your health goals. By aligning teeth at optimum spacing, replacing damaged teeth and caring for your gums, you can reduce your risk of dangerous complications. This will in turn not only create a beautiful smile, it will create a healthier you. Now that’s something to smile about!
