Your Teeth
Your Health

 

Your Teeth Your Health Flyer


The health of your teeth and your mouth are important for overall health.
Gum disease is a serious condition that can affect people of all ages, especially people over the age of 40. The following can increase the likelihood of developing gum disease:
 Poor oral hygiene
 Diabetes, heart disease, and cancer
 Environmental factors such as smoking and stress
 Medications that can affect the condition of the gums
 What you eat and drink

What happens when you don’t brush?
 Increased plaque on the teeth & increased risk of cavities which can cause pain and tooth loss.
 Increased risk for gum disease.
 If plaque is not removed from teeth by regular brushing, bacteria from the plaque drip into the blood stream and can cause hardening of the arteries increasing the risk of blood clots and problems with blood sugar levels.

What can I do to improve my oral health?
 Brush 2 times a day for 2 full minutes
 Floss at least once a day
 If you have dentures, take them out overnight or a few hours during the day to let your gums breathe.
 Visit the dentist twice a year!

Long-Term Care

 

Long-Term Care is a variety of services that help people with health or personal needs and activities of daily living over a period of time. The fact is, 60 percent of people over 65 will need some type of long-term care. Long-term care does not mean a complete loss of independence or control over your life. The keys to owning your future are planning early and wisely, knowing your options, and taking action. It is about living well.
