Tooth Decay Can Cause BLINDNESS!

See Your Way To Better Oral Health!

 

Everyone knows the importance of STRONG ORAL HEALTH, but did you know that it also affects something else you might not even realize...? 

 

YOUR EYE HEALTH

 

That's right. Taking care of your oral health not only provides you with a BRIGHT SMILE you can show off, but also better eye health you can enjoy for years to come. (1)

In this blog we talk about how oral care and eye health are connected, and how you can enjoy BETTER ORAL AND EYE HEALTH TODAY!

 

THE CONNECTION

 

It's hard to imagine how cleaning your teeth can affect your vision, but at this very moment there are studies being done to investigate a potential link between your oral health and eye health.

This link is so strong that even eye care professionals are noticing that patients with poor eye health also suffer from poor oral health. The main oral problems they're noticing that also lead to vision problems include mercury fillings, poor gum health, and tooth decay. (2) (3) (4)

Another example of poor oral health that can also lead to vision problems is periodontal disease, as gum disease can lead to systemic body problems beyond just your gums. (5)

 

FUN FACT: About 12 million Americans 40 and older suffer from vision impairment. Promote better eye health and healthy oral care today with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE TRIO! (6)

 

There is one particular eye condition that seems extremely connected to your oral health - glaucoma.

In fact, researchers from the State University of New York found that people who have undergone more dental work have a higher rate of glaucoma after closer inspection of the bacteria in their mouth and their oral care routines. (7) (8)

Now before you start freaking out, it's important to note that research is still in development into this connection between glaucoma and oral care. However, it's also important to remember that poor oral care has already been linked to cataracts. (9)

POOR ORAL CARE AND BLINDNESS

 

Another important link between oral care and eye health is the scary connection between tooth decay and orbital cellulitis, an infection that can cause blindness.

A great way to lower your chances of developing this infection is by taking care of your oral health and following a strong, healthy ORAL CARE ROUTINE. (10)

The link between oral care and orbital cellulitis is so strong that it's recommended you seek immediate help if you have a dental or sinus infection to prevent the development of orbital cellulitis. A better way to do this is by simply PREVENTING DENTAL INFECTIONS in the first place with the right ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE ROUTINE! (11)

 

FUN FACT: One billion people have near or distant vision impairment that could have been prevented or has yet to be addressed. Don't be another statistic! Protect your oral and eye health today with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE TRIO! (12)

 

If you really think about it, your eyes and your mouth are actually pretty close to each other. So, it's no wonder that a problem with one would impact the other. And this is especially prevalent in cases of orbital cellulitis.

Some of the symptoms of orbital cellulitis to look out for are swelling of your eyelids and the surrounding soft tissues, as well as periodontal pain and swelling problems with abscess. (13)

The reason oral care can lead to so many of these other health problems - including eye damage - comes down to bacteria. In fact, not keeping healthy oral hygiene can lead to bacteria and inflammation that can worsen with a weakened immune system. (14)
