Dental Health May Be the Secret to Overall Health
Date:6/24/2013

(PRWEB) June 24, 2013

Forget diet and exercise – one of the biggest secrets to good health is right in your mouth. New research shows that healthy teeth aren’t just important for first impressions, but they can have a lasting impact on your health. A new study says that brushing and flossing are simple ways to prevent – and improve – your heart health, diabetes and other lasting conditions.

According to a May 2013 study by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, dental health is a considerable challenge nationwide. In 2010, approximately 21 percent of adults aged 65 and over had no natural teeth. Women had a slightly higher rate of edentulism (25 percent) than males (17 percent). Of those aged 65 and over with natural teeth, nearly half (47 percent) wore dentures.

Without proper dental care, the study states people are at high risk for gum disease, including gingivitis and periodontitis, which is an irreversible stage of gingivitis where the body breaks down the bone and tissue in the infected area of the mouth, usually resulting in tooth and bone loss.

Signs of Gum Disease
The most obvious signs of gum disease are:

  • Bleeding or swollen gums
  • Bad breath
  • Mobility of teeth
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Tooth loss

Long-term Health Risks
Without treating gum disease, you may be putting your body at risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, chronic kidney disease and preterm birth.

According to the American Centers for Disease Control, studies suggest that gingivitis may increase the risk of conditions such as heart disease and stroke because of the higher levels of bacteria that are found in the body.

A study done by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research found a direct association between cardiovascular disease and periodontal bacteria. <
