Great Teeth and Good Skin

Great Teeth and Good Skin are Really Interconnected!

Great Teeth and Good Skin

If you’re struggling with acne and feel like you’ve tried everything, from expensive face washes to high-end facial toners to overnight spot treatments, there’s a chance that the issue may actually be your bad teeth or lack of good oral health. We know, it sounds a bit outrageous , right? Surprisingly enough, the two are actually related !

Healthy Teeth is equal to healthy Skin

Most people don’t know that the condition of their teeth and gums has a significant impact on their overall health and skin ! How is this possible? Studies have shown that the bad bacteria from an abscessed (infected) tooth or gum disease can get onto your facial skin and cause skin irritation and breakouts. While not every case of acne is caused by poor dental health, it is something to keep in mind.

Your acne position tells a lot about your skin and teeth health

A) Pimples that cluster on your lower cheeks, around your lips, and on your chin often indicate that poor dental hygiene, a cavity, or gingivitis are contributing to your facial inflammation.

In addition to access to your skin via the bloodstream, since these areas are close to your mouth, it’s easy for the bacteria to directly reach them and wreak havoc on other parts of your skin! To prevent oral bacteria from getting on your face, make sure to wash your face AFTER you brush your teeth.

B) By washing your face after brushing, you are sure to remove any acne-causing particles that dripped onto your chin or around your mouth while you brushed your teeth!


If you believe your acne is linked to your oral health, get into a better dental hygiene routine by brushing twice a day for two minutes each, brushing your tongue every day, flossing daily, and using fluoridated mouthwash. If this doesn’t improve your acne, come visit Partha dental near you and make sure your mouth is clean and fresh !

Remember a tooth infection that may have been left untreated could be causing your breakouts. If left untreated, these issues won’t only cause pimples – they can negatively affect the health of your heart, lungs, and other parts of your body especially your skin !

So good teeth = good skin !
