BRUSH YOUR TEETH TO PREVENT PNEUMONIA AND SEPSIS
One in every four hospital acquired infections is pneumonia and pneumonia is the leading cause of sepsis. Germs in your mouth replicate five times in 24 hours. Brushing your teeth regularly can help to prevent pneumonia and sepsis.
Floss Every Day
Flossing is something you should be doing every day. There are things that brushing just can’t take care of, and that’s where flossing comes in.
Brush Twice a Day for Two Minutes
Brushing your teeth twice a day doesn’t only help battle morning breath and that lingering gross taste in your mouth, it also helps reduce the chances that you will develop gum disease. So every morning and every night brush for two solid minutes.
Rinse With Mouthwash
Aim to make rinsing with mouthwash a regular occurrence after you brush and floss. This antimicrobial rinse will help keep your mouth clean and will do wonders for your breath.
