The Link Between Oral Health and Medical Illness Dental

6 hours ago

1. Heart disease. Researchers have found that long-term periodontitis, an infection of the gums, can lead to coronary heart disease or atherogenesis, a condition in which plaque forms in your arteries.
2. Stroke. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, or have lost significant amounts of bone and tissue around your teeth, you may be at increased risk of stroke.
3. Diabetes. Researchers have discovered that periodontal disease somehow affects the body's metabolism and can contribute to the development of pre-diabetes, a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal.
4. Pregnancy complications. Research by the American Academy of Periodontology has shown that periodontal disease can increase the risk of delivering a pre-term baby with a low birth weight.
5. Kidney disease. Poor oral health also seems to be linked to chronic kidney disease, which affects blood pressure and bone health, and can lead to kidney failure and heart disease.
6. Mental health problems. It's common knowledge that stress and anxiety can impact your health. But research has now shown a strong relationship between gum disease and many mental health problems, including stress, depression, distress, anxiety, and loneliness.
7. Alzheimer's disease. A debilitating brain disease that causes dementia, Alzheimer's disease affects more than five million Americans today. As researchers seek clues to the causes of this disease they have found that inflammation — specifically chronic periodontal disease experienced early in life — quadruples your risk of developing Alzheimer's.

7 Common Dental Problems and the Best Ways to Treat Them

5 hours ago

1. Tooth Decay. Tooth decay is also referred to as dental caries or cavities. It occurs when the bacteria in plaque is given the chance to settle on teeth.
2. Gum Disease (Periodontitis) This is a bacterial infection brought about by accumulations of plaque in the mouth. The bacteria eats away at the gum tissue and the ligaments that hold the teeth in place.
3. Tooth Infection (Root Infection) This happens when the root (the bottom part) of a tooth becomes infected and fills up with bacteria. It damages the nerves and the pulp tissue inside the tooth itself, if left untreated, so get to the dentist right away if you think that you might have this condition.
4. Enamel Degradation. This is a very common problem and it is characterised by very round and noticeably discoloured enamel surfaces. It occurs as a result of exposure to corrosive materials like fizzy drinks and sugary snacks.
5. Dry Mouth. This condition is sometimes called xerostomia, but it is most easily recognised with the simple term ‘dry mouth.’ Unsurprisingly, it is caused by a lack of saliva in the mouth.
6. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) The rather long winded condition, Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, involves a dysfunction of the similarly named joint.
7. Oral Cancers. Clearly, this is one of the most serious dental problems that you can develop, so it is vital that you recognise the signs as soon as they appear, if they ever do.

15 Common Dental Problems and Tooth Diseases

1 hours ago

1. You've made a dentist appointment, and it can't come soon enough. Meanwhile, it can help to rinse your mouth with warm water, floss to remove food caught between teeth, and take an over-the-counter pain reliever.
2. Your teeth are like your laundry: The right approach will remove many stains. Foods, medications, tobacco, and trauma are some of the things that can discolor your teeth.
3. These little holes in your teeth are bad news. You get them when a sticky bacteria, called plaque, builds up on your teeth, slowly destroying the hard outer shell, called enamel.
4. It's the No. 1 type of dental injury. An accident can cause a chip. So can something much less dramatic, like chomping popcorn. Your dentist may recommend a crown if the chip is large or bonding with a strong resin material to replace the area that chipped.
5. An adult tooth that doesn't come in properly is "impacted." It usually happens when a tooth is stuck against another tooth, bone, or soft tissue.
6. You were playing football without a mouth guard, or chewing, or maybe you don’t know how it happened, but now you’ve got a cracked molar. Can your dentist save the tooth?
7. Ice cream should taste good, not make you wince when the cold hits your teeth. The first step is to find the cause. It could be cavities, worn tooth enamel or fillings, gum disease, fractured teeth, or exposed roots.
8. How many teeth are in your mouth? If you’re like most people, you had 20 primary, or “baby,” teeth, and you now have 32 adult teeth. It's rare, but some people have extra teeth, which is called hyperdontia.
9. The fix -- orthodontia -- isn’t just for kids. And straightening crooked teeth and aligning your bite doesn’t just make for a prettier smile. It can be an key part of improving overall dental health, relieving symptoms like jaw pain.
10. You may not consider a gap between the front teeth a problem at all. Famous people who sport the look include singer Madonna, actress Anna Paquin, model Lauren Hutton, and football player turned TV co-host Michael Strahan.

8 Common Dental Problems and How to Prevent Them

2 hours ago

Estimated Reading Time: 9 mins
1. Cavities/Tooth Decay. Cavities are permanently damaged areas in or around the surface of your tooth that results to tiny holes. This one of the most common dental problems and can happen even to infants.
2. Gum Disease. Gum disease is one of the most common dental diseases adults get. It has three developing stages starting from gingivitis. Gingivitis is a gum disease that is reversible but, if not treated accordingly, may lead to a more serious problem call periodontal disease.
3. Bad Breath. Nothing is more embarrassing than bad breath. Sadly, bad breath, also known as halitosis, is a common oral problem across all ages. But, as much as we might think this is common, it’s usually a sign of other dental problems.
4. Dry Mouth. Sometimes called xerostomia, dry mouth is simply what it’s called. This is a condition where saliva glands are not able to produce enough saliva to keep the inside of the mouth moist.
5. Tooth Crowding. Tooth crowding isn’t only an aesthetic dental problem. It can cause alignment issues that eventually can cause temporomandibular jaw disorder or TMJ.
6. Root Infection. If you’ve heard of or tried a root canal treatment, then you know a root infection is a serious problem. It’s painful and very uncomfortable.
7. Tooth Loss. Many of the common dental problems we’ve already discussed can lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease eventually leads to this if not treated immediately.
8. Oral Cancer. Oral cancer is the deadliest dental problem one can encounter. A study done by the Oral Cancer Foundation shows the drastic numbers of oral cancer.
9. Common Prevention. All of these common dental problems can be prevented and kept at bay with very simple day-to-day oral hygiene measures. Brushing in the morning and before bed alone won’t be enough to make sure your oral health is on tip top shape.
10. In a Nutshell. Dental problems can be prevented and completely avoided if you be responsible of your oral health. If you take hours a day in the gym to keep your figure, you should show the same dedication to your oral hygiene.
