We Fix Teeth to Preserve Your Health and Reduce Your Pain
Posted on 8/23/2021 by office
It is important to take care of your health. Many people may not realize this, but your oral health greatly affects your general health. While dental treatments can take away your dental pain, improve your facial aesthetics, your speech, and your bite, that is not all! The top reason to have your teeth fixed is to benefit your overall health.
The Focus is on Your Health
Your mouth affects many other parts of your body. In fact, taking care of your teeth and gums affects your overall health and wellness. For instance, taking care of your mouth can lower your risk for heart disease. If bacteria in your gums enters your bloodstream it can build up in your arteries. This buildup may lead to a form of heart disease. Oral bacteria can also increase your chances of developing inflammatory problems. Rheumatoid arthritis develops when you have an excess of inflammation in your body. Oral bacteria can introduce high levels of inflammation to your body, causing inflammatory conditions.
Since gum disease can increase your risk for cancer, especially cancers in the blood, it is important to prioritize your oral health to benefit your entire body. Additionally, having gum disease makes it harder to maintain control of your blood sugar. If your gum disease is advanced, you may have increased blood sugar production, which can lead to diabetes.
Schedule Your Routine Cleaning and Exam
It is important to practice good oral hygiene on your teeth and gums. This will benefit your entire body. We suggest brushing two times a day and flossing once a day. It is also important to maintain your dental cleanings and exams. Schedule your routine cleaning and exam at our office today. We want to help you not only reduce your pain, but also improve your overall health.
