Bad Oral Health Can Lead To Serious Health Problems

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Have you had your dentist ask you questions like, “Are you snoring or sleeping bad?' or “Do you suffer from halitosis no matter what you eat or do?' or “Do you suffer from acidity?' This is usually the dentist trying to figure out if you have other health problems due to bad oral health. Very often poor dental health is actually a pointerknowing about.

Mouth odor which is so terrible and everyone hates, could be the result of poor digestion, bad eating habits, gastroenteritis, and many other similar problems. High acidity also causes yellowing of teeth, plaque and even cavities. Snoring is another example where oral health points to underlying health problems - in this case it is respiratory disorders.

Recent studies show that even heart diseases could be detected through the analysis of the condition of your oral health. Tooth infections and abscesses can influence the immune system to such an extent that the heart would be affected as well. When there are acute and continuous recurring infections of the jaw bone in particular, it is often a pointer that the heart is under threat as well.

This is why it is important to visit us at least every six months so you would not only ensure the health of your teeth but also your health overall. Our professional dental staff would be able to tell you whether what you are suffering from is due to poor dental hygiene or poor eating habits.

There are a few things that you should always do to ensure that your teeth stay healthy and disease free.

1. Brush your teeth two to three times a day - generally the best habit is to brush immediately after a meal. However, brushing 2-3 times a day would suffice. Brushing usually helps to remove any remaining food particles from in-between teeth and also wash away any acidic remnants.

2. Flossing is a must - flossing is once again a very important daily activity which you should never ignore.

3. Avoid sugary foods - Generally speaking this creates acidity and gastric problems. When sugary matter remains on the teeth it weakens the enamel and causes cavities.

It is very important that you pay attention to the health of your teeth and mouth in general for neglecting this aspect may impact negatively the rest of your body.If you are experiencing bad oral health  problems or haven not visited us in the last six months contact us and set up your schedule today.

What our Patients are Saying

Front desk people were awesome as usual. Courtney the hygienist is always great too. Pushed me to go have something on my lip looked at which proved to be pre cancer that needs to be removed.

LZ 3-26-13

Dr. Barton was great with my son. He let him "play" with some of the instruments before actually using them so that made my son feel more comfortable. My son, at age three, loves going to the dentist and hopefully this will continue.

CC 11-7-12

Courtney Wager was excellent......she had a thorough understanding of my Son's needs. She also advised me to seek a total diagnosis with an ENT doctor. She was looking at the whole condition (tongue-thrust swallow) not just her speciality. Great experience over all!

RL 11-4-12

Ever since I have been coming to Dream Smile I have had nothing but great experiences. All the employees are very professional and cater to your every need, especially Nicole.

EDC 7-28-11

My visit, from start to the end, was great. When I do have the work done on my tooth, I would prefer the dentist that was on duty that day, as he took the time to explain things to me about the tooth. Also, special thanks to the girls behind the desk who were patient and extremely nice as my Delta Dental Plan was being determined.

MG 8-24-11

There was some confusion re: my appointment time. Courtney was kind enough to fit me in. The front desk team is excellent!

Everybody was great from front desk people to Sandy, Courtney, and, of course, Dr. Shwartzman. Considering a year ago I was totally dental phobic, I can't believe how comfortable everybody has made me feel. Lucky to have such great workers.
