Good dental health may protect against common cold
Updated: 1/5/2009 4:00:21 PM

Good dental health may protect against common cold Using mouthwash assists with good dental care, but may also boost one's immune system, meaning less time warming up soup during cold winter months.

In an article published yesterday expounding on tips for a healthy lifestyle, the website TodaysZaman.com suggested people practice good dental care to avoid serious conditions and illnesses.

Chicago resident Joanna Broussard told the news provider she started using Listerine as part of her regular dental care routine approximately 12 years ago.

"I haven't been ill since then. Everyone around me would get a cold or flu, but I had grown immune," said Broussard.

However, a stronger immune system is only one of the benefits of good dental health. Last year, it was reported receiving regular dental care such as teeth cleaning may possibly reduce the risk of heart disease, EmaxHealth.com reports.

Also, a separate study found proper dental care can assist diabetics suffering from gum disease lower their health care costs as high as 12 percent less from what they regularly pay. A teeth cleaning can remove harmful bacteria, which can lead to poor diabetes control, InSciences.org reports.
