Regular dental visits are important for more than just pretty teeth. A dentist can tell a lot about your overall health by the condition of your mouth. Some research even suggests that the condition of your mouth and gums may mirror the condition of your whole body.
When teeth and gums are in poor health, other health problems may exist. According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD.org), there may be a link between periodontal (gum) disease and more serious health issues such heart disease and diabetes. It has been shown that women with gum disease have higher incidences of pre-term, low birth-weight babies.
Poor oral health may also lead to speech issues, oral and facial pain, problems with the heart and other major organs, or digestive irregularity. So, don’t wait until it is too late to care for your teeth and gums. Contact BayView Dental Associates for a complimentary consultation and help both your mouth and entire body stay healthy.
