It’s really easy to think about your waistline, improving your sleep, or other health-related goals when focusing on how to improve your overall health. One aspect, though, that’s chronically overlooked is that of your oral health. Your oral health is hugely important for the health of the rest of your body, and without great oral health your systemic health will suffer.

Add mouthwash

You’re likely good at brushing your teeth twice a day, but are you aware of the big benefits that come from adding mouthwash to your daily oral health routine?

Mouthwash is great because it helps get rid of all the extra bacteria and plaque that your brush couldn’t quiet reach. It kills all the bad bacteria in your mouth and helps improve the overall health of your gums as well, lessening your chances of forming an abscess or gum disease.

Use flossers

Flossing in the traditional way can be a pain. Pulling out a piece of floss, holding it tight between two fingers, and running it through your teeth? No, thanks. Instead, use a flosser. These are plastic devices with a pre-stretched piece of floss in the middle of a wrench-like opening. Use them once and throw them away, and you don’t have to worry about tangled floss ever again!
