What About Mom’s Teeth? #buildingsmiles

Last month I talked about oral care for kids  and how to get kids excited about brushing! The overall response I got from moms was that we all make this a priority. Then it occurred to me it is not just the kids that need to care for their teeth. What about Mom’s Teeth? Does Mom need to get regular check ups? Is it important to think about her own dental care?

YES! Colgate teaches us that oral care for Adults is very important! In fact, they teach us that women specifically need to pay careful attention to their teeth. There is a strong connection between Women’s oral health and overall health.

Infections and gum disease can increase the risk of heart disease, strokes, diabetes and respiratory problems! Even if you live a very healthy lifestyle but neglect to care for your teeth and gums you could put your health in danger! It is a scarey thought to think that forgetting to do a simple thing like flossing and brushing can impact your health like this.

But the good news is that if you take proper care of your teeth you have a far less chance of having gum disease and infection affect your health in a negative way! This is wonderful news!

So, Mama…Take care of your teeth! Your health may depend on it!

  • It’s a good reminder that we too need to take care of our teeth. I didn’t know about all of the health related issues that were related to healthy teeth until I started this campaign. Great post!
