Reasons Your Dental Health is Important
Dental health plays a very important role in your overall health, especially as you age. As we begin to grow older, there are some things that tend to fall by the wayside. Your oral health care is one of those routines, and failing to take care of your teeth can lead to issues such as gingivitis, periodontitis, long-term gum infection and even loss of teeth – all serious dental problems that can cause larger health concerns.
Growing research points to a serious connection between oral health issues and larger health conditions. Bad oral health has been associated with:
Several studies have shown that periodontal disease is associated with heart disease and an increased risk of a stroke or heart attack.
Breathing in dangerous bacteria from the mouth to the lungs makes older individuals more susceptible to the condition.
Periodontitis limits the body’s ability to use insulin while high blood sugar can lead to gum infection.
A lifetime of eating and drinking stain-causing foods and beverages can lead to darkened teeth.
In severe cases, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, which can have very serious effects on your overall health.
Root decay is common in older populations and can make individuals vulnerable to tooth loss.
Uneven Jaw bone
Tooth loss can cause your jawbone to move and become uneven, causing appearance and bite issues.
Problems with Dentures
Improperly fitted dentures can lead to an inflammation of the tissue under the dentures causing major pain and discomfort.
One of the biggest concerns of poor oral health is its effect on your ability to eat correctly. Loose teeth, improperly fitted dentures, and other oral health issues can affect how you eat and what you eat. Improper nutrition can have an even great effect on your overall health.
