Whereas inflammation is the body's first defense against infection, chronic inflammation can lead to a variety of health-related problems, including oral-health problems. One way that individuals can keep the damaging effects of inflammation to a minimum is to exercise good oral hygiene. Here are some suggestions:

  • Brush the teeth at least 2 times a day with a fluoride-containing toothpaste to reduce the risk of gum disease, a source of chronic inflammation
  • Use a soft-bristle toothbrush
  • Use floss at least once a day to remove plaque from between teeth
  • Have regular dental examinations
