4 Connections Between Oral Health and Poverty The …

Just Now

Estimated Reading Time: 4 mins
1. There is a close link between poor oral health and malnutrition. This is largely because people who have inadequate nutrition may also have weaker teeth, which are then more prone to decay.
2. People with chronic dental pain struggle with productivity. As most anyone who has had a toothache can attest to, dental pain can affect one’s ability to focus.
3. Uncontrolled oral bacteria can cause larger health issues. Without regular oral hygiene measures like brushing and flossing, the mouth, and especially the gums, can build up bacteria that does not just cause tooth decay but is also harmful to the rest of the body.
4. Focusing on oral health requires habits that benefit overall wellness. The primary example of this is the reduction of tobacco use. Smoking and chewing tobacco have a number of negative side effects, including crippling tooth decay, gum disease and cancer.

5 Signs Of Poor Oral Health Jefferson Dental RxEconsult

1. Swollen or bleeding gums. Any changes in color, swelling, bleeding or sensation in your gums is indicative of issues with your gum health. Even mild swelling that persists for several days or longer is a sign of an irritant trapped under the gums, or even more likely is the sign of early gum disease.
2. Tooth pain. Feeling pain in one or more teeth isn’t something to ignore, and certainly won’t go away on its own. You may feel different degrees of pain; mild or moderate pain, throbbing pain, or pain with chewing or biting.
3. Plaque buildup. There are millions of bacteria in our mouths at all times, even with daily brushing and flossing. Plaque, simply put, is a sticky film on the surface of the teeth that is made up of bacteria.
4. Growths inside your mouth. Oral cancer is one of the biggest and most silent killers, responsible for more than 10,000 deaths annually.While anyone can develop oral cancer, certain activities leave people more predisposed to develop this illness.
5. Changes on your tongue. Your tongue is just as big of a part of your oral health and wellness as your teeth and gums. Be aware of any changes in color or texture of your tongue, which can be a signal of oral health abnormalities.
