Can Dental Care Improve Your General Health?

dca-blog-272-mix-of-leftover-articles_1200x630

The connection between your oral health and your general health is stronger than you may realize. Clues about your general health can be found by examining your teeth, gums, and other soft tissues in your mouth. Even your saliva can give away your body’s medical secrets. It’s also true that problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body. As researchers learn more about these connections, the importance of professional dental care becomes even more obvious.

Bacteria: The Link Between Overall Health and Oral Disease

Your mouth is full of bacteria. If you don’t brush or floss, plaque buildup and infection eventually result. Tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss follow. Studies have suggested that the toxins produced by oral bacteria and the associated inflammation of periodontitis can play a role in the development of some serious diseases. Reduced saliva flow due to certain medications or medical conditions can also affect your health. Saliva normally washes away food particles and neutralizes the decay-causing acids produced by bacteria. Poor saliva flow may result in bacterial overgrowth despite good hygiene.

Beyond Family Dentistry: Systemic Diseases Linked to Poor Oral Health

Family dentistry professionals are often the first ones to notice signs and symptoms of a systemic disease, and some of these are serious or even fatal. The conditions listed below are all associated with oral disease in some way:

Endocarditis spread through oral infection
Sjogren’s syndrome
Cardiovascular disease with associated heart attacks and strokes
Premature birth and low birth weight
Adult-onset diabetes
Oral lesions suggesting HIV and AIDS
Osteoporosis
Alzheimer’s disease in people who experience tooth loss before age 35

Improve Your Habits and Visit an Affordable Dentist

You can improve your oral health by brushing twice each day, flossing daily, eating healthy foods, and avoiding tobacco. Most importantly, schedule regular visits with an affordable dentist to keep your mouth healthy and protect the rest of your body.
