Could Seeing an Affordable Dentist Affect your General Health?

The condition of your teeth, gums, and mouth can reveal important clues about your general health. In fact, more than 90 percent of all systemic medical conditions produce detectable symptoms in the mouth. Family dentistry professionals can detect many problems by simply analyzing your saliva. The connection between dental health and general health makes getting regular dental care even more important. The next appointment you make with your dentist could actually change the course of your medical history.

Why your Mouth is a Valuable Family Dentistry Diagnostic Tool

What your dentist finds in your mouth can reveal a great deal about your overall health. For instance, certain types of lesions inside the mouth can be indicative of AIDS. Elevated cortisol levels, important cancer markers, proteins that help monitor osteoporosis, fungal or bacterial infection, environmental toxins, and even illegal drug use can all be detected through saliva. The presence of gum disease or severe plaque buildup is a warning sign that you’re at higher risk of other diseases. Under normal circumstances, bacteria inside your mouth doesn’t enter your bloodstream, but diseased, bleeding gums can allow access. If your immune system is not healthy enough, oral bacteria can travel to other parts of your body and cause serious infections.

The Relationship between Dental Care and Serious Ailments

In recent years, researchers have 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. In addition to being a potential warning sign of diabetes, gum disease also makes the condition more difficult to keep under control. And for pregnant women, oral infections can increase the threats of preterm birth and low birth weight for their babies. The good news is that treating gum disease and preventing its progression with the help of your family dentistry professional can reduce the risk of these and other medical conditions. To learn more about how your oral health affects your general health and well being, visit an affordable dentist for a checkup.
