Cuida de tus dientes si no quieres coger una Neumonía

Take care of your teeth if you don't want to get pneumonia

As we have already told you other times, there is a direct relationship between the health of our mouth and the general health of our body. Today we talk to you about the relationship with respiratory health.

90% of the population does not know the importance of oral health. Most people think that oral health is only important to avoid cavities and keep all the teeth for as many years as possible. But it doesn't go here, it goes much further. In the last decade, society has highlighted the importance of having good health and we cannot ignore our mouth if we want to be 100% healthy.

As we mentioned in the post "Having good oral hygiene gives you more years of life" , the mouth is directly related to the digestive and respiratory systems. Therefore, if there is the presence of bacteria and infection in the oral cavity, it can cause diseases in both systems.

Periodontal disease is a disease caused by bacteria infecting the tissues that support the teeth, that is, the gums but also the bone. As we have already told you other times, all of this is due to an accumulation of bacterial plaque produced by food remains. The presence of bacterial plaque causes an inflammatory response to our gums, which slowly progresses over time, reaching the deepest tissues.

Numerous studies have confirmed that dental plaque favors the colonization of microorganisms in the lungs. And if we take into account that we take in a very important part of the air through the mouth and that is where the plaque is located and where a possible infection can occur, we are very easily transporting bacteria from the mouth to the lungs. And yes, we are talking about respiratory conditions such as pneumonia or COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.)

"It's better to prevent than to cure"

This saying has never made more sense. And curing a respiratory disease is not easy or pleasant, and prevention (apart from others) requires proper oral hygiene. To do this, we recommend brushing after each meal and visiting your dentist every 6 months, even if there is no visible damage.

Likewise, we list a series of symptoms of periodontal disease that would imply an urgent visit to your dentist to find a solution as soon as possible.

  • Inflamed or swollen gums.
  • Bright red, dark, or purple gums.
  • Gums sensitive to touch.
  • Receding gums.
  • Gingival bleeding when brushing teeth, even spontaneously.
  • Unpleasant odor coming from the mouth or bad breath.

Knowledge is power

We want our clients to be as informed as possible so that they consciously make their oral hygiene decisions.

At Dr. INUK we believe that oral health is vital to having iron health. And for this, it is vitally important to have the habit of maintaining good hygiene. For this reason, we create honest, accessible and simple products focused on simplifying the habits that really matter in oral health.

Why is oral health so important? Well, because it has been scientifically proven that the general health of the body is directly related bi-directionally to the health of the mouth. You can read more here.

Furthermore, in recent years, we have detected that most people do not like the experience of oral hygiene products and it is the main reason why people do not get into the habit.

Our first product, Dr. INUK whitening strips , are formulated with Sodium Chlorite, which has whitening power, but also has the ability to eliminate bacteria that produce plaque from the surface of the teeth. This will help you whiten your teeth and keep plaque and, as a result, cavities at bay.
