Why Your Oral Health Matters
In recent years, an overwhelming amount of research has found significant links between an individual’s oral health and his or her overall health. Diseases that were once thought as disparate as a dentist giving away caramel apples are now thought potentially connected.
Researchers have found connections between gum disease and a host of chronic, long-term health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and even some forms of cancer. The more scientists delve into the mysteries of oral disease, the more they begin to realize that what happens in our mouths can affect the entire body. What this type of research makes clear is the importance quality oral health has not only on our ability to eat, drink, talk, and smile, but also in protecting our overall health, as well.
Trying to keep up with the latest trends in health can feel occasionally overwhelming, as can trying to separate fact from fiction when it comes to the best oral health practices to use at home. By reading the City Dental blog, you’ll have access to all of the information needed to make sure you and your family can continue smiling brightly for a lifetime.
Of course you don’t need to wait for a blog post to get the answers to your oral health questions. We encourage all of our patients to ask Dr. Bajuscak or any member of our staff at City Dental any question you may have about the best oral health practices during your next visit to our downtown Portland dental office.
Patients can no longer afford to ignore the state of their oral health or treat dental care as an afterthought. What the emerging research has shown is that a healthy mouth means a healthy, happy body. Put your oral hygiene habits at the top of your daily to-do list and lower your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Your body and smile will thank you.
