Breathe easy and brush your teeth!

Recent studies link oral health to respiratory issues

At Image Dental in Perth, we know that oral health is not only imperative to the health of your mouth, but also the overall health of your body! There have been strong links connected to poor oral health and Dementia, Alzheimer?s, stroke, heart disease, diabetes and now a new link has been discovered between oral health and respiratory issues such as pneumonia!

Poor oral health usually creates an environment that harbours harmful bacteria, called Streptococcus, which causes plaque, decay and periodontal disease. Scientists have discovered that these harmful bacteria can assimilate to the respiratory system through inhalation of droplets from the mouth or throat. This can cause infections or worsen conditions already present.
