Oral Health and the Rest of Your Body
Were you aware that your overall health can be positively or negatively affected by your oral health? Your mouth has millions of bacteria, and most of them are harmless. But it is the entry point to both your digestive and respiratory systems, and sometimes bacteria from your mouth can cause disease. Proper oral health can prevent future problems, and this can include teeth whitening with a high-quality product like our CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit.
Good oral healthcare and the body’s natural defenses are usually enough to fight against infections. It’s important that you brush and floss your teeth daily, which can keep the bacteria under control. Without proper oral hygiene, you can end up with infections like gum disease or tooth decay.
Another way infection can enter your body is if you experience decreased saliva production. This can be a side-effect of a number of medications like painkillers, antihistamines, and antidepressants. Saliva normally washes extra food and neutralizes acids that are generated by the bacteria in your mouth. Without that flow, microbial infections are more likely.

Conditions that are Linked to Oral Health
Bad oral health can contribute to a handful of diseases and conditions that you wouldn’t expect, such as the following:
- Cardiovascular disease. Though cardiologists and other professionals don’t completely understand the link, the inflammation and infections that can be caused by bacteria in your mouth have been linked to heart disease, stroke, and clogged arteries. Even without a perfect understanding of how that works, it’s enough to know that it does to make you want to be especially careful about your oral health.
- Pregnancy and birth complications. A disease of the gums called periodontitis has been shown to have a link to both low birth weight and premature birth, which is another good reason to take good care of your oral health during pregnancy and preferably before.
- Endocarditis. When bacteria or germs travel from your mouth, through your bloodstream, and attach themselves to certain areas of your heart, you can get an infection that affects the inner lining or your heart’s chambers or valves (also known as the endocardium). This is one of the more common ways that poor oral hygiene can affect your body outside of your mouth.
- Pneumonia. Since your mouth is the gateway to both your digestive and respiratory systems, it’s possible for bacteria in your mouth, which would normally be flushed through your digestive system, to be inhaled into your lungs. This can cause pneumonia.
How can the CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit help me protect my oral health?
Because the CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit removes stains from your teeth, it can be an important part of your oral hygiene routine. Along with proper dental care, whitening can help to ensure that stains don’t turn into tooth decay. The CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit contains everything you need to whiten your teeth for an entire month, including two teeth whitening trays, teeth whitening gel, and teeth whitening foam. On top of that, affordable refills are available.
The first thing you’ll do when you receive your teeth whitening kit is mold the whitening trays to your upper and lower teeth. This serves two purposes. First, it makes them easy to wear as long as overnight. Second, it keeps the whitening solution on your teeth so it doesn’t irritate your gums or lips.
Wearing traditional metal braces can cause a buildup of bacteria in your mouth, so you’ll be happy to know that the CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit is perfect for teeth whitening with braces. Simply mold the trays when you first get them, and then you can remold them whenever your braces are adjusted. You can do this over and over until the braces come off.
The teeth whitening gel and foam are perfect for anyone who wants a whiter smile. The foam is perfect for teeth whitening with sensitive teeth, because it’s made of a gentle 8% solution of carbamide peroxide. You can use the foam multiple times a day, or you can use it overnight so teeth whitening doesn’t take any time out of your schedule. The gel is made of a stronger 22% solution, which can whiten your teeth in just 20-30 minutes per day. Whichever you choose, you’ll have whiter, stain-free teeth with the CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit.
