Alcohol exacerbates oral health problems  

There are many surprising things that may impact a person's dental health. While most people know that eating and drinking too many sugary substances, such as soda and candy, and ignoring oral care can cause dental problems, they may not realize the massive impact that alcohol can have on their teeth.

For example, Dentistry.co recently reported on a study published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology which found that people are three times more likely to suffer from severe gum disease if they are dependent on alcohol compared to those who only drink occasionally.

Furthermore, the chance of having a dental health problem increased if individuals were smokers. The American Dental Association states that smoking may cause oral cancer, stained teeth, bad breath and gum disease.

"The crucial thing to remember is with a good oral hygiene routine, dental problems can be prevented and kept at bay. Developing a good routine and sticking to it will also help to stave off a whole range of health problems, so there is no excuse for poor oral hygiene." said study authors, quoted by the news source.
