Wellness news: Healthy lifestyle, healthy smile

Jun 6, 2016

You may know that practicing good oral hygiene helps you stay healthier overall, but did you know that following a healthy, active lifestyle may also positively affect your oral wellness?

This summer, be sure to get outside and be active — not just for your body and mind, but also your mouth. 

Adults who are sedentary and eat poorly are significantly more likely to develop periodontal disease than those who engage in high levels of physical activity and choose a healthy diet, according to a study in the Journal of Periodontal Research. 

Instead of sitting inside during the summer and snacking on candy or chips, take a walk and eat a proper meal. It's the right choice for your body and your teeth.

For ways to keep your smile healthy and lead a healthy lifestyle visit Delta Dental Insurance. Find helpful articles on a variety of topics on the Delta Dental website.
