Great info, thank you so much for sharing! I believe that there is a definite link between clean teeth and the rest of the body. All that plaque goes elsewhere can't be good.But I'm a bit confused in knowing the fact that some bacteria from a bad mouth can affect other organs like heart and causes stroke.
