How to Maintain Good Hygiene
Keeping your teeth, tongue and gums clean takes more than a rinse with mouth wash or the occasional brush. Your mouth is a considerable breeding ground for bacteria, and a transfer station for sending harmful bacteria throughout your bodys system. According to research by Dr. Weston A. Price, cited in the book, Root Canal Cover-Up, bacteria trapped in teeth can travel throughout the body, infecting organs, glands and tissue and can damage the kidneys, eyes, heart, brain and joints. In addition to thorough brushing, floss frequently to remove food lodged between teeth. Flossing also helps strengthen gums. Brush your tongue and gums, as well as your teeth, twice a day, to remove harmful bacteria and promote fresh breath.
