Teeth brushingEven though the main benefit of daily brushing is a good dental health, there are many more positive consequences of keeping that habit.

As pointed out by diverse scientific studies throughout the years, there are many benefits of teeth brushing that go far beyond dental health. In fact, the good condition of the oral cavity along with other aspects of dental hygiene, such as eating habits or cleaning routines, have very positive effects on your overall health.

A recent study by the University of California and a previous one by the American Geriatrics Society have associated daily brushing with a lower risk of developing dementia. The latter, conducted over a period of 18 years, found out that the participants who didn’t practice daily brushing had a greater chance of developing dementia than those who did. However the studies cannot yet establish a cause-and-effect relationship between the brushing routines and a lesser chance to develop dementia, there seems to be a strong link between this condition and a poor dental hygiene and tooth loss.

Not only because of this link, but due to the harmful effects that missing teeth can have for your health, tooth replacement treatment procedures are recommended by dental experts around the world. Even though brushing can help maintain an optimal dental condition, many other factors can influence to develop decay, gingivitis or root canal inflammation.
