And grin when you win!
Almost 80% of adults have gum disease – a startling statistic and the reason that everyone needs to pay strict attention to their home oral health care routine. But did you know that exercise can help decrease your risk by up to 52%?
Exercising just 3 times a week:
- reduces the unhealthy bacteria in your mouth that cause gum disease
- regulates blood sugar which, when at a high level, creates acid that causes cavities
- helps your body absorb minerals that keep your teeth strong.
So next time you’re longing to be a couch potato, work in a work out! Your smile will thank you!
