Health of gums improves with weight loss.

Leila Haywood

Breaking research indicates that losing weight is associated with healthier gum and bone support around the teeth.  The human body really is amazing with how all of its body systems are interlinked.  Medical and dental specialists around the world agree that poor dental health is linked to heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer's disease and even foetal death. The overload of bacteria from the mouth are thought to spread through the blood stream to other areas of the body. One researcher had a case where a patient who was immobilised in a wheel chair had had analysis of a lesion on her spine, which was found by DNA analysis to have formed from bacteria of a dental origin.

We now know that dental health is critical to having a healthy body, and a smile always has been the best accessory!
