When it comes to maintaining the height of health and wellness, we can all likely agree that, now more than ever, this should be a top priority.
But did you know that an unhealthy mouth can, in fact, lead to an unhealthy body? It’s true. Keep reading to learn more about this important topic.
Oral health linked to overall wellness
It has long been known that optimum oral health is directly linked to your overall health. In fact, you are risking dental and other health issues when you neglect your teeth and gum health.
Not only does improper dental care cause cavities, bad breath and gum disease, it can also cause gums to become inflamed, which can damage your teeth’s supporting bone and tissues. At its worse, this can cause tooth loss.
However, in addition to these concerns, poor oral health can have an effect on your body’s health overall — and sometimes this can be serious.
Studies continually indicate that poor dental health, including not brushing or flossing enough and not visiting the dentist for your bi-annual cleanings and exams, can put you at risk for coronary artery disease, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, heart attack, diabetes and certain cancers.
While this is not always the case, and everyone is different, it is best to ensure that your dental routine is up to par—and to schedule your visit with Dr. Milan now. Not only will your teeth be expertly cleaned and examined for any abnormalities, we can also make recommendations for both in-office and at-home care to help your mouth be as healthy as possible and avoid any potential immune issues.
