4 Ways Good Oral Health Can Boost Your Overall Health

4 Ways Good Oral Health Can Boost Your Overall Health

Your mouth is the window to your body, everything we put into it will have an impact on our health. Did you know that the health of your mouth also impacts the rest of your body's health?

With more and more research, we're discovering how important healthy oral care is in the prevention of infections and diseases in the rest of our body. Keeping up good dental hygiene and oral care can improve your immune system and help your body battle negative symptoms caused by conditions such as the common cold/flu, diabetes, heart and kidney disease, asthma, and certain cancers.

As we all search for new ways to improve our immune system and our overall health, taking care of our oral health is one way to do this. We brush our teeth twice a day, and hopefully floss regularly, too. Shouldn't that keep our teeth and mouth bacteria-free? Turns out, our manual toothbrushes may not be brushing our teeth as well as we need them to.

That's why we tried BURST's Sonic Electric Toothbrush to see if it could improve our health. Here are 4 ways we've learned our oral health impacts our overall health, and how BURST helped us be healthier.

1. Removing Plaque

Poor oral care can be visible in many ways, the build-up of plaque is one of them. Plaque is full of bacteria, and not the good kind! So for your health, you must be consistently removing the plaque off your teeth and preventing that build up.

The BURST Sonic toothbrush provides up to 10x greater plaque removal than a manual toothbrush. Since using the BURST Sonic toothbrush we have seen and felt the difference in plaque on our teeth.

2. Preventing Bleeding Gums

Bleeding gums is a major sign of gingivitis, or gum disease. Most people don't take this as seriously as we should. Bleeding gums is caused again by the bad bacteria on our teeth. As the bacteria feeds on carbs and sugars, it produces acid that damages your enamel and the roots of your teeth which leads to gingivitis.

If you are consistent with using your BURST Sonic toothbrush it reduces bleeding gums (gingivitis) up to 3x more than a manual toothbrush. A reduction in bleeding gums is a great sign that your oral health is good.

3. Bacteria in your mouth entering your bloodstream

The more you slack with your oral hygiene, the more bad bacteria that can build up in your mouth, causing inflammation. Potentially, this bacteria could enter your bloodstream to cause inflammation in other parts of the body as well.

Scientists are starting to link more and more disease to bad oral health. Our respiratory system is a risk area as bacteria in your mouth can be pulled into your lungs, causing coughs, pneumonia and other respiratory diseases. The less bacteria in your mouth means your overall immune system stays stronger, and research has proven that using BURST toothbrush significantly reduces both plaque and gingivitis, meaning less bacteria.

4. Change your brush often

How can you clean with a dirty cloth? Same goes for your teeth. Brushes get worn down and dirty, so we need to replace them to ensure clean and healthy mouths. BURST bristles are embedded with charcoal, which is naturally antimicrobial. And, to ensure you're always brushing with the very best, they send you a new replacement head every 90 days for as low as $6.This way you don't forget to ever replace your brush or need to keep track, just change it once the new brush heads arrives right at your doorstep. Plus, you can pause or cancel at any time.

Another benefit to the charcoal bristles? They adsorb stain-causing bacteria, which means it whitens as it cleans. It even has three different modes, whitening, sensitive, and massage. The brush automatically turns off after two-minutes and pauses every 30 seconds so you brush each section for the right amount of time. And don't worry about the battery, cause it lasts for a whole month.

To ensure even better oral health, BURST kits, which also contain their awesome Expanding Floss, start at just $74.99!
