Taking care of oral health is more important than most people realize. A person’s oral health can actually provide powerful insights into their health overall. In fact, some problems that affect the mouth can actually affect the rest of the body too.
Like other regions of the body, the mouth harbors bacteria. Most of this is harmless. However, it is important to keep in mind that the mouth is the entry point to the respiratory and digestive tracts, and that some types of bacteria can cause disease. The embedded infographic provides statistics about oral hygiene in the United States.
The ear, nose and throat deserve daily attention, according to experts, who recommend nasal rinses as part of a daily routine. The sinus cavities are effectively tiny tunnels that run through the bones of the face. They have many different functions, some relating to the movement of air.
When the body produces too much mucous – an occurrence often triggered by allergies or a virus – it can clog sinus cavities, resulting in sensations of pressure and pain and, potentially, a full-blown sinus infection. Also referred to as a nasal lavage or nasal wash, a nasal rinse can clear these clogged pathways in the sinus. Using a saline solution to flush sinus cavities also prevents growth of bacteria, significantly decreasing symptoms, as well as the risk of future sinus infections.
The embedded video provides more information about what a nasal rinse involves, outlining some of the main health benefits in terms of helping to eliminate nasal congestion and reduce the risk of sinus infection.
