PresiDental Plan makes caring for your oral health more affordable

Oral health is about so much more than just the health of the mouth, teeth and gums. Because the mouth
is a primary entryway into the body, poor oral health can affect the entire body. Toothache, gums that bleed
easily, and breath that smells bad are all indicators of neglected oral health. Bacteria from the mouth can
easily get into the bloodstream and cause infection and inflammation wherever it spreads. Here are some
examples that result from substandard Oral Health in the human body:

  • Cardiovascular Disease

  • Dementia

  • Respiratory Infections

  • Diabetes

  • Pregnancy Complications

  • Infertility

  • Erectile Dysfunction

  • Cancer

  • Kidney Disease

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    To practice good oral hygiene:

     

  • Brush your teeth and gums for two minutes at least twice a day

  • Floss your teeth daily

  • Avoid smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco products

  • Use toothpaste and mouthwash products that contain fluoride

  • Limit sugary foods and drinks

  • Eat a well-balanced diet for optimum nutrition
