One Body – How Oral Health and Overall Health Work Together

If you’re vowing to take better care of your body this year, you might want to start with your smile. Researchers still aren’t quite sure if one causes the other, but health issues in the mouth often indicate health problems in the rest of the body. For examples, gum disease is common among people with diabetes, and sensitive teeth or enamel erosion may indicate acid reflux or hiatal hernia conditions. When gingivitis is left untreated and gum disease develops, the gums pull away from the teeth, allowing bacteria to slip below the gum line. Once it is introduced to the bloodstream, bacteria can spread throughout the body, causing infections that can complicate heart or kidney disease. The good news is, many of the habits to maintain a healthy mouth like eating a balanced diet of healthy foods and drinking plenty of water, promote whole-body health as well. Practicing preventive care by brushing and flossing daily and visiting the dentists regularly will keep your mouth healthy and do your body good.
