Flossing Can Affect Fertility

Spread the love

New research out of the University of Western Australia links oral health to fertility. Flossing, brushing your teeth and seeing your dentist regularly are all important when trying to conceive. The study looked at 3500 women and found that poor oral health causes inflammation and can delay conception by about two months.

If your gums are pale or bleed when you brush you may already have gum disease. Aside from seeing your dentist, brushing and flossing, a mouth wash or rinse can also be very beneficial. Pathway GUM TONIC is an herbal formula that helps strengthen gum tissue with its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and astringent properties. Ingredients include goldenseal root, bayberry root bark, prickly ash, myrrh gum, and coptis root. Mix 1 dropperful in a small amount of water and rinse. Not only is this formula great for gums, but it is also helpful for painful canker sores too.
