If you have gulped a glass of orange juice in the morning, right after brushing your teeth, it probably didn't taste so good. Brushing your teeth after you're done eating has that effect with more than just orange juice. Once your mouth feels minty-fresh, food and drink will not be that palatable, so you're more likely to stop eating. Teeth brushing is a signal for your brain to tell your body that eating is over. So after dinner, go ahead and brush your teeth. It will help you fight the urge to eat anything else. This alone can help with weight loss since many people eat out of habit or boredom at night. These calories are the worst because they don't get used up you just take them to bed and they become fat
4: Improved Pregnancy
Pregnant women are more prone to what is called "pregnancy gingivitis." This is a mild form of gum disease usually associated with bleeding and swollen gums . Focusing on good brushing helps with pregnancy gingivitis and also keeping your Dental appointments when you are pregnant.
Bleeding gums can be the beginning of full-blown gum disease, and that can cause more than just irritation or discomfort. There have been studies showing links between women who have chronic gum disease and premature births, or preterm/low birthweight babies. One study on 450 women that Redmond Molloy read found that of those with untreated gum disease, a staggering 79% delivered early or had babies with low birth weights. Compare this to a low 4.1 percent of women with healthy gums who had similar issues.
5:Prevent Respiratory Diseases
You don't usually associate teeth brushing with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and pneumonia, but it turns out, you can. So, what's the correlation?
COPD and pneumonia are potentially disabling respiratory infections and primary causes of death in the United States. These infections occur when bacteria get into the lower respiratory tract. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection and it starts when bacteria from plaque gets in and around the teeth. Can you see where this is leading?
In January 2011, a new study which Redmond Molloy has seen was published linking gum disease with respiratory disease. Research showed that the bacteria associated with gum disease could increase the risk of developing COPD and pneumonia. On the other hand, teeth brushing can reduce your chances of gum disease because it takes care of tartar and plaque, preventing the bacterial build-up in your mouth. By working with your dentist or periodontist, you may actually be able to prevent or diminish the progression of harmful diseases such as pneumonia or COPD," said Donald Clem commenting on the research
So, while it doesn't seem like much,but those six monthly visits to Redmond Molloy and that two to three minute brushing a few times a day could actually save your life.
