Keep Your Mouth Healthy
By Maya G.
A mouth under systematic attack with oral infection can make some of the basic
things in life
such as eating, drinking, talking even breathing difficult. Oral disease can
seriously affect your overall health and can also cause huge oral pain
If your gums bleed or you have problems with your teeth, don't ignore
the problem. If you do, you could put your health at serious risk.
Periodontal disease, if left untreated, can result in the inflammatory
destruction of gum tissue and bone. The infection from
your mouth can travel through your blood stream thereby increasing your
chances of other diseases. It is documented
within health care community that oral disease can increase chances of
heart disease, stroke, diabetes, respiratory and many more.
Make sure your dentist or dental hygienist know your medical history
before any work is done in your mouth. The last thing
you need after surgery is bacteria in your blood stream. So, if you
do dental work ask your doctor for opinion. Most doctor will
advise their patients about proper medication for pending dental work.
Every treatment plan should be individually tailored.
Did you know that smoking is one of the primary
causes of periodontal disease? The risk for smokers developing gum disease is
more than twice that of nonsmokers.
Keep in mind that
the first thing people see is your teeth. If they are bad or you have
poor oral hygiene, people will make judgments and categorize you.
A proper dental care program at home combined with regular appointments
to monitor your teeth and gums will have positive results on your
health and overall well being.
