Recent Study on Gum Disease Diabetes Connection Highlights the Many Links Between Dental and Overall Health, Says Medical Center Dental Care
Date:7/16/2015

According to a June 26 article on Medical Xpress, a new study has been published that adds evidence to the prevailing medical opinion that there is a link between periodontal disease and heart disease. While previous studies had done a good job of drawing a causal relationship between good dental hygiene and a decreased risk of heart disease, this study aimed to dig into the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of the issue. The article explains that there is a cell receptor (CD36) that produces a protein when exposed to bacteria. This protein in turn leads to an increase in inflammation, which can affect both periodontal and heart disease. Los Angeles dental group Medical Center Dental Care explains that this link between heart disease and periodontal disease is just one of the many health benefits that good oral hygiene and regular preventative care with a West Hills dentist can have on a person’s overall health. The dental experts at Medical Center Dental Care note that there are also ties between dental health and risks of diabetes, osteoporosis, and premature birth.

  • Diabetes – Medical Center Dental Care explains that the link between diabetes and dental health is actually a two-way street. While diabetes can increase the risk of infections, therefore worsening gum disease, it was also seen that patients with gum disease often have a more difficult time keeping their blood sugar at an appropriate level
  • Osteoporosis – Since teeth are made of bone, it is easy to understand how a disease that makes bones weaker and more brittle could be a detriment to oral health, says Medical Center Dental Care. Those suffering from osteoporosis often experience the loss of teeth, which can, in turn, lead to other dental health issues, if not addressed appropriately.
  • Premature Birth – Researchers have also found that a certain bacteria associated with periodontal disease has been disproportionately detected in women who given birth prematurely or to stillborn infants. Medical Center Dental Care notes that it is important for women who are pregnant to consult a dentist as part of her prenatal care.

While there are a wealth of medical benefits that can arise out of proper dental care, Medical Center Dental Care reminds patients that they provide a variety of cosmetic services as well. They note that anyone looking for everything from a West Hills orthodontist to an expert endodontist to perform a root canal procedure with minimal discomfort, can call (818) 452-0038 today to make an appointment, or learn more about their practice at http://www.mc-westhillsdentalcare.com.
