Health-conscious members of the public who take part in regular exercise could be limiting their chances of needing emergency dentistry, it has been suggested.
Recent advice from the British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF) claimed that physical activity could prevent the onset of gingivitis and periodontal disease.
For this reason, individuals have been urged to carry out exercise on a regular basis in a bid to ward off the potentially harmful infections.
In addition, the organisation urged people to keep their dentists informed of any changes to their overall health to prevent the development of gum disease.
Eating a balanced diet, which is rich in fruit and vegetables, was also recommended to ensure teeth and gums remain in a good condition for as long as possible.
This useful advice comes after the BDHF revealed that Clyde Football Club would be sponsoring Mouth Cancer Action throughout the upcoming season, with the hope of raising money for the cause.
