  • So many diseases you wouldn't think were connected to bad teeth and gums - heart disease, stroke, etc. I learned years ago to floss - and my gums stopped swelling and being painful. - by DESERTDREAMERS
  • As a nurse we have found out that good oral hygiene can greatly reduce the number of post operative cases of pneumonia. All those little nasty bacteria at the back of our tongues and on our teeth get breathed in after surgery and down into our lungs where they get an infection going.
