Did you know that how well you take care of your oral health can be an indication of how healthy you are? People that have poor oral hygiene habits often have oral health diseases or problems that can affect their immune system. There are also many autoimmune diseases that can affect your oral health. Your immune system is connected to every part of your body. If you’re not taking care of one part (such as your teeth and gums), you can experience problems from bacteria, infections, decay, and more. Follow this blog post to find out how your oral health is connected to your immune system!

The immune system is your body’s built-in defense system to help protect you against foreign infectious organisms, germs, allergens, and more. Many people think there is a certain area where the immune system lies, but it is actually a system composed of many cells, organs, proteins, and tissues that go all throughout your body. This is how your body fights off infections whenever you get cuts or open wounds on different areas of your body, or breaks down diseases and bacterial infections within the body.

Your mouth is one of the main areas that play a major role in your immune system and overall health. If you think about it, everything that passes through your body generally comes in through the mouth. The food you eat, the liquids you drink, medicines, allergens, and more come through your mouth. It’s not surprising that your oral health is strongly connected to the function of your immune system. If you have better oral health, you can expect to have better overall health and fewer illnesses.

Do you want to have better oral health and a better immune system? Start by taking better care of your mouth! First, you must eat a balanced diet to stay healthy overall. A proper diet full of all the essential nutrients will help you avoid chronic conditions and diseases. If your diet is a healthy one that is low in sugar, your mouth will make less decay-causing plaque. Plaque is a byproduct of bacteria in your mouth and sugars in your foods and drinks. It’s also what leads to tooth decay and gum disease.

If you are already susceptible to gum disease or you currently have it, you can reduce many of your health symptoms by simply brushing and flossing more. The American Dental Association recommends brushing at least 2 times a day and flossing 1-2 times. If you have an autoimmune disease or diabetes, you should brush more often than this. You should also be seeing your dentist at least 2 times a year, if not every 3-4 months. A dentist can keep your oral health in check and in a range that reduces your immune system problems. Better oral health can significantly lead to a better immune system.
