Family Dentistry Plays a Role in your General Health

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

You probably know that good dental care can prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. But, did you know that it can also have a huge impact on your general health? Family dentistry professionals can learn important facts about your body just by examining your teeth, gums, and saliva. In fact, more than 90 percent of all systemic diseases produce oral symptoms and signs. Most importantly, research has proven that taking good care of your teeth can reduce your risk of medical problems. Seeing an affordable dentist regularly could actually prevent serious disease as you age.

Your Mouth: A Family Dentistry Diagnostic Tool

What your dentist finds in your mouth can reveal volumes. For example, certain types of lesions inside the mouth can be indicative of AIDS. Saliva can reveal elevated cortisol levels, important cancer markers, proteins that help monitor osteoporosis, fungal or bacterial infection, environmental toxins, and even illegal drug use. The presence of gum disease or severe plaque buildup is a warning sign that you’re at higher risk of other diseases. Bacteria inside your mouth doesn’t normally enter your bloodstream, but diseased, bleeding gums allow access. If your immune system isn’t healthy, the bacteria can cause infection and inflammation in other parts of your body such as your heart valves.

Dental Care and Serious Ailments

Researchers have recently found that many common and serious medical problems are associated with gum disease and inadequate dental care and hygiene. The inflammation associated with periodontitis has been linked to cardiovascular disease, which can lead to fatal heart attacks and strokes. Besides being a potential warning sign of diabetes, gum disease also makes the condition more difficult to control. Pregnant women face threats of preterm birth and low birth weight for their babies caused by oral infections. The good news is that treating gum disease and preventing its progression can reduce the risk of these and other medical conditions. Visit an affordable dentist to learn more about your oral health and how it affects the rest of your body.
