How Does Your Overall Health Affect Your Smile?

Educating Epping Dental Patients About Little-Known RisksThere are many common medical conditions that pose a risk to oral health. We see many of them at Brentwood Dental Designs – Tamatha L Johnson DDS in Epping.

  1. Epping diabetes patients with high blood glucose often have a higher risk of dental issues. If you have diabetes, let’s talk. Call our office today.
  2. A persistent dry mouth due to an inadequate amount of saliva can accelerate tooth decay, cause or contribute to gum disease, and trigger chronic bad breath. Many medications, including those for high-blood pressure and depression, cause dry mouth. This side effect is not only unpleasant, it is dangerous. Anti-depressants (especially SSRI’s) and anti-psychotic drugs can also trigger tooth grinding (bruxism).
  3. Acid reflux is associated with a host of dental problems such as decay and periodontal disease.

Regular professional dental care is essential for oral health, and an important part of your overall physical health.
