Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health?

  1. 1. Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health • brought to you by http://paradise-dental.com www.paradise-dental.com
  2. 2. Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health Microorganisms in the mouth can lead to infections, tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. Oral bacteria can also travel into the bloodstream, causing or contributing to a number of diseases that affect more than just your smile. Regular dental checkups as well as good oral hygiene (flossing, brushing, mouthwash and chewing sugar-free gum) Keeps those gross germs at bay. www.paradise-dental.com
  3. 3. Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health Stress is one fact of life we cannot change. Think it's just those pearly whites that benefit from dental hygiene? Think again. Not only does oral upkeep stave off mouth odor, cavities, and gum problems, it's also linked to life satisfaction and overall happiness. Below are six diseases that either contribute to or are affected by neglecting the dentist's advice.Alzheimer's Disease: www.paradise-dental.com
  4. 4. Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health Impaired cognition doesn't bode particularly well for remembering to brush, floss, and gargle. People suffering from Alzheimer's need a care take in order to reduce the risk of serious oral health issues? Cardiovascular Disease: The hordes of bacteria festering in our mouths can easily crawl into our bloodstreams. Several studies suggest leads to plaque buildup in the arteries, and may precipitate aneurysms. www.paradise-dental.com
  5. 5. Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health Tooth loss has also been linked to cardiovascular problems. Need we say more? Diabetes: The relationship between dental health and diabetes goes both ways: The effect of a diabetics blood sugar levels fluctuating can take a toll on an individual's oral health. Oral infections interfere with blood sugar and diabetic symptoms set the stage for these infections to occur. www.paradise-dental.com
  6. 6. Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health An inflamed mouth is a breeding ground for chemical signals that interfere with sugar and fat metabolism by screwing with insulin. Pesky proteins called cytokines build up around irritated or swelling tissues and can leak into the bloodstream to further throw off diabetics insulin secretion, marring the proper metabolism of sugar and fat found in the diet. www.paradise-dental.com
  7. 7. Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health Diabetics' hyperglycemic state only worsens this inflammatory cycle: Too much sugar in the blood of protein molecules in the blood, leading to swelling of tissues in the mouth...and elsewhere. Osteoporosis: While this might not be a worry in younger years, what we do now directly influences bone health later in life. Bone-mineral density has been shown to predict periodontal disease - and vice versa. www.paradise-dental.com
  8. 8. Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health A recent study tracking the rates of periodontal disease in postmenopausal women for five years found that the severity of their mouth problems and osteoporosis increased at a similar rate. The researchers believe this has much to do with how mineral loss makes teeth more susceptible to the bad sides of oral bacteria .Granted, women seem to be at a higher risk for osteoporosis and its related oral health concerns. www.paradise-dental.com
  9. 9. Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health But that's no excuse for guys to shy away from the toothpaste aisle. The bones of both sexes can benefit from brushing up. Premature birth: Women who give birth to babies well before their due date tend to have more mouth infections than those who deliver babies closer to their ETAs. Molecular signals released by inflamed gums (cytokines and a species called Creactive protein, to be exact) sneak out of the mouth www.paradise-dental.com
  10. 10. Does Oral Health Predict Overall Health and into the placenta via mom's bloodstream. Damage done to still-in-the-oven offspring signals to her body that it's time to get this puppy out, albeit ahead of scheduling. Looking for Orlando Dentist?
