How Dental Health Impacts Your Overall Health

No items found.
It's a common misconception that failing to take care of your teeth will only lead to issues with your smile. While you may lose teeth or develop discoloration from a lack of care, you'll also experience health issues in the rest of your body. This is because your mouth is full of veins that connect the blood supply in your gums and jaw bones to the rest of the body. Infection and toxins can quickly spread from the mouth directly to the heart, brain, and more. Taking care of your teeth and gums is part of taking care of your health in general. Learn what conditions in particular can be triggered or worsened by issues with your dental health.

Why is Professional Teeth Cleaning Important?

Keep your smile bright with oral prophylaxis, also known as professional dental cleaning, and you’ll stay healthy in the long run. Several serious diseases, such as gum disease, are linked to poor oral hygiene. Keeping your teeth clean and healthy at home is important, but many people start to develop oral problems sooner or later. A professional cleaning can help you prevent this. Maintaining a healthy smile means going to the dentist and seeing a hygienist regularly. Here are some reasons why getting your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis is important:

When to Test for Mouth Cancer

When you make an appointment with your dentist, you're likely concerned about cavities or gum disease at worst. Yet each routine visit for a cleaning and dental inspection will include a basic screening for oral cancer. In some cases, the dentist may end up recommending further tests to rule out the chance of cancer. The key is to take these warnings seriously without feeling panicked or anxious. Oral cancer screening is a routine part of adult dental care, and a test or two is nothing to worry about. Learn what will make a dentist recommend testing and what methods are used to keep you safe if you show any mouth cancer symptoms.
