Dental Health is Important to Your Overall Health

Did you realize there is a “Mouth Body Connection”? You probably learned to brush your teeth at a very young age. The basics of dental care have been drilled into our brains from our parents for as long as we can remember, but as adults, the importance of our oral health can seem less and less important as we live our daily lives.

Life can get busy and hectic, and sometimes, we tend to worry more about our overall health and wellness than our mouth’s health. The truth is, our whole body is connected. When your mouth isn’t healthy, it’s often an indication that something is wrong. That’s why dentists are regularly the first line of defense for diagnosing certain diseases, such as diabetes, oral cancer, heart diseases, etc.

Your mouth is a window into the overall health of your body. Learn more from the ADA about Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body.

Reason to Prioritize Oral Health

Knowing that our oral health is linked to our overall health, the importance of brushing and flossing just went up! Simply put, a healthy mouth can help keep your body healthy and ward off certain diseases. Who knew our mouth could do so much good for us?

The mouth is a great window to the rest of your body, so when you visit us at Adams Dental, we can take a peek into your overall health during your regular dental cleanings and exams. This could save you money, time, and health down the road. When your dentist can catch a problem early, there’s a much better chance of figuring out what’s going on and treating it early, with a higher success rate. Oftentimes, dentists can detect warning signs before we experience any symptoms. Actually, oral health is an easy way to boost your immune system, learn more HERE.

Brushing, flossing, and regular trips to the dentist can protect you from more than just cavities. Learn more about the mouth body connection from WebMD, Overall Health and Oral Health.

Diseases Highly Linked to Oral Health

Gum disease has been linked with multiple health complications, including stroke and heart disease, according to the Academy of General Dentistry. Similar research shows that 90 percent of all systematic diseases have oral manifestations. This means that diseases that involve most of our body often show symptoms and signs in our mouth. These often take the form of:

  • Swollen gums
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Dry mouth
  • Gum problems
  • Broken teeth

At the University of North Carolina, studies found that people with gum disease were three times as likely to have a stroke and twice as likely to die from a heart attack. Those are some scary statistics. But the good news is, your dentist is here to help and knows exactly what to look for to keep you healthy and safe! Let us do the legwork and check your overall health – make an appointment today!
