Your oral health is more important than you realise:
– Sub-optimal oral health can put you at a higher risk of serious diseases such as heart disease.
– If you are being treated with certain medications, they can reduce your saliva; this leads to dry mouth, which can result in more tooth infections
– Make an appointment to see your dentist now to check your teeth and mouth are in tip top condition.
“If you are on medication that can cause less saliva, it’s best to brush more and also discuss the issue with your dentist.”
