We’ve all heard it from all of our dentists, “You need to floss more!” or “don’t forget to brush the very back of your molars!” Whatever, most of us don’t worry about their warnings until the day before our next dental visit. The worst that can happen is that we get a little cavity, and they just fix it with a silver cap, right? Turns out, bad dental hygiene isn’t just bad for your teeth, its also bad for your health. Today’s infographic lists 14 bad-dental-hygiene ailments that plague everyday people just like you and me. Poor oral hygiene can lead to heart disease, respiratory disease, and even brain abscesses! Preventative medicine is the best medicine, so please, listen to your dentist and floss your teeth and brush all the way to the back of your molars! Your body will thank you! [via]
