How the condition of your teeth and gums can also affect your overall health.
It is a little known fact that the quality of our oral health can also have a major effect on the rest of our body. Poor oral health can even lead to some fairly serious, and potentially life threatening problems.
Most of these problems are more likely to occur when gum disease is present. Although most of us brush our teeth; too many, unfortunately, do not do so for long enough or use a brush that is too worn to be fit for purpose. If your gums are red and sore or there is blood in your saliva when you clean your teeth, there is a strong possibility that you have gum disease and you should arrange to have this checked at our dental practice in Bristol as soon as possible.
