Healthy Mouth Makes For a Healthy Body

A healthy mouth makes for a healthy body is what a new advertising campaign from Listerine says. Listerine is one of the widely used mouthwashes worldwide and in a recent advertisement running on "USA Today" Listerine claims, "If you think it's just for your mouth, think bigger."

The mouthwash is used to treat bad breath, prevent and reduce plaque and gingivitis, and kill germs between the teeth.

Member of Listerine's research and development, Dr. Madeline Monaco, has said, "there's an association between the health of the mouth and the health of the body."

Researchers have found that unhealthy mouth, especially gum diseases, may increase the risk of serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, poorly controlled diabetes, and preterm labor, and the case for good oral hygiene keeps getting stronger by the day.

According to Academy of General Dentistry, more than 90 percent of all systemic diseases produce oral signs and symptoms.

At the end of the day, good oral and dental hygiene can help you prevent bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease, and if it can also help in improving your overall health than that makes it even better.
