Great Health Demands Good Dental Care

Checking Dental Health Helps Keeps Diseases At Bay

While most people think that dental problems only concern their teeth and gums, the truth is that they can be a sign of conditions affecting the whole body. Research has shown that dental pain can indicate issues with heart health, blood sugar levels, and respiratory illness. Since dental problems may be a symptom of diseases and other health concerns, it’s important to see your dentist on a regular basis and pay attention to any changes in your dental health.

Dental problems have long been linked to diabetes, but they can also signal blood disorders, impaired immunity, bacterial diseases, and nutritional deficiencies. These issues are caused when the bacteria from tooth decay or gum disease spreads throughout the body. In addition to being a sign of poor health, dental disease can actually lead to health problems. For instance, severe gum disease can increase the risk of premature delivery and low weight among pregnant women. Since dental problems are so closely tied to health concerns, they demand attention beyond your usual dental care. Treating them early can save a lot of effort and expense, so find an affordable dentist in Collingdale to take care of them immediately.

If you’re over age 40 or dealing with diabetes, it’s important to practice good dental care and visit your dentist regularly because gum disease can evolve into the more serious periodontitis, which can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes or worsen an existing case. The high sugar levels often associated with diabetes can also compromise your immune system and make it more difficult to fight infections, including oral disease. This can result in tooth decay, delayed healing of mouth sores, tooth sensitivity, and dry mouth.

Respiratory illness is also related to dental health. When high levels of bacteria accumulate in the mouth, they can move down the throat and into the lungs to cause conditions that complicate breathing. If left untreated, this can lead to serious illnesses like pneumonia.

Since your dental health is so connected to your overall health, it’s important to keep your dentist informed of any health conditions or concerns. This will help your dentist catch any problems in their early stages and devise the dental care treatments that will be most beneficial.

While treatment is good, prevention is best. Proper dental care can go far toward preventing the dental disease that can lead to health conditions in the body. Good dental care includes brushing teeth twice a day and flossing daily, along with regular check-ups by an affordable dentist in Collingdale. These efforts can make a significant difference in your dental health and overall wellness.
