Could You Having Oral Health Problems Lead to Your Kids Also Having Oral Health Problems?
Posted on 4/20/2019 by WDG Office
Bacteria are tiny little creatures that live in your mouth naturally. While the bacteria live in your mouth inconspicuously for the most part, they can cause problems for your mouth as well. But did you know that bacteria can be harmful for your mouth? Did you also know that your bacteria is not only harmful for your mouth, but your kids' mouths as well? It is possible that if you have oral problems, your kids might also have oral problems. Not sure what we are talking about? Keep reading, We can tell you how the bacteria in your mouth can affect the mouths of your children. So What? Bacteria are small organisms, usually only one cell or a few cells in length, that live all over your body, inside and out. Encountering bacteria is inevitable. They are everywhere. In general, bacteria live all over the world, on many animals, in the ground, air and water, peacefully. In some cases, such as your gut, bacteria are extremely beneficial. It is vital to your gut's health that you have bacteria in it. If you don't have bacteria in your gut, you may have issues with digestion. That being said, bacteria can also be harmful. Harmful bacteria can damage your body, and in some cases, can even be fatal. For example, E. coli bacteria normally live in your intestines and aid in digestion. But one strain of E. coli is responsible for disease and death in humans. Bacteria in your mouth need to be brushed away, because they are responsible for acids that attack your teeth and gums. The acids in the bacteria break down the enamel of your teeth, which may lead to cavities, or a weakening of your teeth. Avoiding the bacteria is your best move. In order to avoid the bacteria, you will need to make sure that you brush and floss your teeth often. Brushing and flossing your teeth helps to get rid of the bacteria, and washing them away. You also need to make sure that you are not sharing toothbrushes, eating utensils and drinking cups with other people in your family, because that will spread the bacteria.
