The Link Between Overall and Oral Health

For decades scientists have been studying the link between inflammation and overall health, more importantly the link between gum disease and other problems such as COPD, heart disease and stroke.

People with gum disease have a higher risk of these types of diseases because the plaque and tartar flows through the bloodstream and attaches itself to the vessels and arteries in your heart. The more congested the vessels and arteries the less oxygen flow to your organs and your brain.

What is Plaque?

Plaque is the sticky film that you wake up with in the morning. You will also have a build-up of plaque if you aren’t brushing twice a day.

Plaque converts to tartar. Tartar is the hard stuff that can only be removed by a dental hygienist from Avenue Dental Care.

Unfortunately tartar will kill your bone because it is extremely aggressive. If left untreated, tartar, technically known as calculus, will eat away at your jawbone. This will cause lose teeth. If you don’t treat incurable periodontal disease you will be left with missing teeth.

According to Avenue Dental Care gum disease is the main reason adults lose teeth. What makes this worse is that these days more young adults are dealing with periodontal disease because of poor hygiene.

What You Can Do

Your Everett dentist advises brushing twice, flossing once each day and eating a good diet. This will help your teeth and gums.

A good diet includes fruits, vegetables vitamins and minerals. In addition calcium, which comes from dairy products, builds strong bones and bones are just as strong as teeth.

Furthermore regular dental checkups are must. If you don’t have a checkup, a professional cleaning, a restoration examination and an oral cancer screening at least once each year you aren’t being proactive with oral health care.
