Your Teeth-A Frequent Cause of Ill Health – Strength Magazine -May, 1926

Have you ever realized that bad teeth are often the cause of disease? Well, it certainly is true that bad teeth have caused many diseases, and such conditions as rheumatism, auto-intoxication, and indigestion among others, are frequently the result of diseased teeth. There are always living in the mouth several kinds of bacteria, some of which, when present in large numbers, cause the teeth to decay. Therefore, the teeth should be brushed at least twice daily with a brush dipped in warm water; and you should also use a good antiseptic tooth paste.
