Brushing up on Canadian Oral Health

Keeping your teeth healthier for life - PHILIPS

It wasn’t so long ago that many people accepted tooth loss and dentures as a natural part of getting older. Today, that’s simply not the case. People can have naturally beautiful and healthy teeth for life. But good oral healthcare is not just about how your teeth look. Maintaining healthy teeth and gums can have a direct impact on your overall health.

Philips Sonicare believes that good oral habits, learned early on, can and will help maintain your teeth for life. Whether your concern is healthier gums, whiter teeth or better plaque removal, you’ll find a Sonicare toothbrush that delivers the oral care you want and need. Our line of brushes is engineered with you in mind and backed by proven clinical results.

Here’s what you should know about oral health and overall health:

o Healthy teeth and gums are very important.

o Dental problems can affect overall health in subtle ways. For instance, dental problems can cause headaches and face pain, affecting sleeping patterns, appetite and mood.

o Some conditions, such as diabetes, require that you pay special attention to your teeth and gums in order to better maintain your health.

o It’s important to discuss your overall health status with your dentist. Similarly, tell your general practitioner about any dental problems you may be experiencing.
