A part of Trident's mission is to give back to the community, which is why we're joining efforts with our next-door F45 Training.
We believe that your teeth and gums are more than just something that makes you look good when you smile! Maintaining oral health involves cleaning, brushing, flossing, and visiting a dentist regularly—but is this enough?
Not really, because exercise can also help improve your oral health too.
Yes, you heard that right!
Why do our dentists recommend exercise?
Regular exercise can help you lead a healthier life by lowering your heart disease, obesity, and Type 2 diabetes risk. It can enhance your mental well-being too.
Yet the most surprising fact is that physical activity also plays a vital role in improving oral health. According to an analysis report published by the British Dental Journal, frequent physical exercise may also enhance periodontal health.
It's time we understand how exercise can make your smile beautiful.
How exercising improves your smile
Dentists recommend exercising so you can maintain a beautiful smile. Here are a few instances of how exercise can improve your oral health:
1. Better dental alignment
Exercise strengthens your jaw muscles and improves jaw alignment, which reduces stress on your teeth and prevents misalignment. If you are someone who sleeps with clenched teeth or grinds them throughout the night, exercise can help you out.
2. Deter cavities forever
Regular exercise helps prevent cavities, which may lead to tooth loss if left untreated. However, exercise alone won't help! So, brushing and flossing your teeth after every meal is essential to maintaining good oral hygiene.
3. Help manage disorders like TMJ
Exercise has also been shown to help manage other oral conditions like temporomandibular joint disorder, commonly known as TMJ. TMJ is a problem caused by pain in your jaw muscles. While it can be treated with simple lifestyle changes and physical therapy, exercise will help prevent it from happening again.
4. Keep gum diseases away
The benefits of regular exercise extend far beyond improving overall health and well-being. One key reason for adding physical activity to your routine is to reduce your periodontal disease risk. Periodontal disease is a severe oral inflammatory condition that may even lead to tooth loss. Therefore, starting a daily exercise regimen could help you prevent significant pain and suffering down the road.
5. Improvement in BMI equals improved oral health
Gum disease may be twice as common in people with a high BMI compared to those with an average weight. People with a higher BMI tend to have more issues related to tooth decay and periodontal disease, which can, in turn, lead to significant problems, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
Still apprehensive that your schedule is too jam-packed with work–home commitments to get in any exercise?
