Did you know?
- The condition of your mouth mirrors the condition of your body as a whole. Recent reports indicate a relationship between gum disease and stroke, heart disease, and pre-term low-birth-weight babies.
- Mouth tissues often reflect symptoms of other problems, which can be diagnosed in their early stages by your dentist in an oral exam. Many diseases such as diabetes, leukemia, cancer, heart disease, and kidney disease may be characterized by symptoms which show up in the mouth like swollen gums, mouth ulcers, dry mouth and or excessive gum problems.
- Infections in the mouth can affect major organs if left untreated. Poor mouth care can also contribute to oral cancer, and can affect the digestive process, which begins with physical and chemical activity in the mouth.
You can do something about it! Seeing a dentist every six months not only keeps your teeth looking great, it can help identify diseases in their earliest stages. A regular exam allows your dentist to keep your mouth in top form and watch for developments that may point to problems elsewhere in your body. Explore our services below:
