Oral health issues may be a sign people are affected by sinusitis, according to the British Dental Health Federation.
Chief executive of the body Dr Nigel Carter stated some nine million people in the UK are living with the condition, which is an inflammation of the lining of the sinuses.
He claimed dental health is increasingly being linked with other problems in the body, adding: “Taking care of your oral health takes on more and more significance every time a link to the state of overall health is made.”
Dr Carter also highlighted the fact regular trips to the dentist can help to spot issues early on, while individuals ought to cut down on their consumption of sugary food and drink, as well as ensuring they brush their teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
Tests recently carried out in Zurich, Switzerland, found regular brushing of teeth could help to prevent meningitis.
