The Surprising Benefits of Oral Bacteria

There are more than 700 different types of bacteria in your mouth. Although some bacteria can cause teeth and gum problems, other bacteria have health benefits.

In fact, some types of bacteria will aid in the digestive process — while other bacteria help prevent inflammation, and others prevent acidic foods from harming your teeth. Without these bacteria, you would need dental care much more frequently.

This is why it is important to ensure that you encourage these healthy bacteria. Let’s take a look at three ways in which you can do that:

  • Be sure to brush and floss twice daily.
  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables every day.
  • Drink plenty of water every day.

“Bacteria aren’t always bad, and the same is true when it comes to your mouth.”
