Good General Health Starts With Your Teeth

American Fork, Utah, United States, February 11 2021 (Wiredrelease) Tork Media LLC –:When people talk about having better health, they think about getting exercise and eating all of the right food, and this is a perfectly acceptable way to get yourself back into shape. However, many people seem to neglect other parts of the body that are equally important and I am talking about better oral hygiene. Your oral health is a lot more important than you might be aware of and the general health of your teeth and gums can really affect your overall health. Every time that your dentist looks into your mouth, he or she is able to get some kind of clue as to what your overall health is and if you need to go see a doctor. There is a definite connection between your oral health and the overall health of your body. You need to remember that the mouth is the gateway to your digestive and respiratory system, and there might be bacteria in there that can cause disease. 

This is why it is essential that you brush your teeth on a very daily basis in order to keep these bacteria under control. If you don’t take care of your teeth and floss every day, then you might need to visit your orthodontist Dr Bobby Chhoker in Bondi Junction for some much needed attention. There are a number of different medical conditions that can be linked to your oral health and these might contribute to many different diseases and conditions. The following is just a short list of them. 

* Cardiovascular disease – If your dentist finds some kind of inflammation or infection inside your mouth while you are getting dental implants, then it has been found that this might have a link to heart disease, issues with blocked arteries and the onset of a stroke. Obviously, you shouldn’t jump to conclusions if you’re experiencing any of these issues with your dental hygiene, as it may just be something that is simply connected to your poor oral hygiene habits. If you are at all worried about your health, you should make an appointment with your GP to carry out a few tests. 

* Diabetes – It seems that gum disease occurs a lot more frequently with people who have diabetes. This disease reduces your body’s ability to resist infection and this puts the health of your gums and teeth at risk. If you have problems with gum disease, then you probably will experience difficulties in controlling your blood sugar levels. It is essential therefore that you visit your dentist or orthodontist on a regular basis. There are lots of free resources on the Internet that can improve your understanding of diabetes and they can be found with a Google search.

* Alzheimer’s disease – Experiencing oral health that seems to be worsening on an ongoing basis maybe the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease. As the disease progresses, your oral health begins to suffer. This is why it is very important to have regular checkups with your dentist as you get older, so that it can be spotted early and you can get the medical help that you need.

The Importance of Regular Oral Check-Ups

Some people only bother seeing their dentist when they have toothache, which is far from ideal, as oral issues get worse over time and the sooner a cavity is discovered, the sooner it can be treated. Dentists recommend that you have an oral examination every 6 months and during the appointment, the hygienist will deep clean your teeth and if there are any problems, the dentist can recommend prompt treatment. The dentist would likely offer a range of cosmetic dental treatments, such as teeth whitening, teeth straightening and dental implants, which offer a permanent solution to missing teeth.

Correct Brushing & Flossing

You should brush your teeth first thing in the morning, last thing at night and after every meal. Flossing is also critical, as this removes minute food particles that become trapped between the teeth and if you would like to see diagrams showing how to floss correctly, check out YouTube, which has ‘how to’ videos on every topic. Aside from this, having your teeth deep cleaned every 6 months will keep them looking nice and white, or you could opt for laser teeth whitening, which is very effective.

Good general health involves many things like regular exercise, following a healthy diet and taking care of your teeth and should you feel any discomfort with your teeth and gums, make an appointment to let the professional take a look.
