    To live longer and younger, visit a dentist every six months - and floss every day. This will help avoid gum disease and reduce body-wide inflammation that increases your risk for cardio problems (heart attack, stroke and angina) by 70%, and diabetes by more than 50% -- not to mention osteoporosis, problem pregnancies, and respiratory disease.
