- The Significance Dental Health Plays in Overall Health
Unfortunately we have found that a great number of people are not aware of what WebMD calls the “The Mouth –Body Connection”. Here’s how it works, when an excess amount of bacteria is in one’s mouth it creates an infection which then causes your immune system to fight back. In the event that an infection is not addressed properly diseases of the mouth and body can occur. One study reported that people with an existing gum disease were 40% more likely to have a chronic illness as well (WebMD). Some of the most prevalent chronic conditions can also be linked to one’s oral illness or vice versa. These prevalent chronic conditions are heart disease, diabetes, pregnancy, childbirth complications and lung issues. Regular dental checkups are an essential part of your overall health. If you have a chronic condition and have not seen a dentist lately it is highly recommended that you do so. Feel free to contact us or ask your primary doctor if they have any recommendations for dentist that have experience in caring for patients with your condition. There is more to dental services than relieving pain and whitening teeth; we strive to help our patients maintain optimal healthy on every level.
