There is a focus in society to not only live longer lives, but to live healthier at the same time. As CNN correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta states in his new book, “no one wants to die tomorrow”. No kidding :-)
Jay M. Marks, DMD, Danbury CT. cosmetic dentist, says that daily flossing can add SIX years to one’s life expectancy! Imagine, such a simple task cannot only add years to your life, but can increase the quality of your life. The further surprise is that so few people take advantage of this small task.
Sites of inflammation, such as our gum tissue, increase the rate of strokes and cardiovascular diseases. A simple way to remove the bugs that cause gum inflammation is to simply floss you teeth, which cleans the areas that your toothbrush cannot reach.
So, the less teeth you have due to poor oral hygiene habits, can be an indication of you general health, and eventual longevity.
