Preventive care is the foundation to better health. Many of us go for regular physicals to make sure our bodies are healthy. Visiting your dentist is just as important to your oral health.
Our mouths are homes to many different bacteria. If left unmanaged, these bacteria can cause health issues to our overall bodies. Brushing and flossing daily help in keeping bacteria at bay, however, it is still important to keep visiting your dentist and hygienist for regular check-up and cleanings. Hygienist have the training and tools to get in hidden places your toothbrush can’t reach. Removing these traces left behind in the hidden grooves, crevices, in between teeth and below the gum line will play a key part in healthier gums and less chances of gum disease that eventually can lead to health conditions and loss of teeth.
Your mouth can be informative to your dentist of your overall health by examining your teeth, gums, tongue and throat. Inflamed gums can be an indication of diabetes and heart disease. Clenching, grinding, worn down teeth could be signs of stress that could potentially lead to more concerning conditions. Studies have shown that gum disease is a disease and can be associated with many risk factors including heart attacks or strokes.
