Articles The Link Between Oral Health and General Wellbeing
When it comes to our general health there are many factors that can have an impact – and that of course includes dental hygiene and regular visits to your dentist. That’s why it’s important to consider all aspects of your lifestyle to ensure you are able to live as healthy and fulfilling a life as possible.
To begin with, diet is an extremely important part of a healthy lifestyle. Eating healthily helps to boost the body’s immune system and ensures you take in all the essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals to function effectively. If you can’t eat certain foods because of an allergy or an existing health condition, you may benefit from taking supplements and you should ask your doctor for advice on this issue. To prevent issues with teeth you should limit your intake of food containing high levels of sugar.
Exercise is also key to living a healthy life and you should try to exercise three to four times a week for at least half an hour. Team sports and activities such as cycling, swimming and canoeing can make exercise more exciting – you don’t have to force yourself to attend the gym as there are alternatives. Exercise can be a great outlet for stress and anxiety and is a good way to meet other people.
Oral health is also important because it can contribute to your overall health. Many people are aware of the importance of having a healthy mouth but they don’t follow a rigorous daily oral hygiene routine. It is also advisable to visit your dentist so they can check for any problems and a dental cleaning can also help eradicate many developing concerns.
