Gum Disease Sample Tips

Take a Holistic Bite Out of Gum Disease  Four sample tips from Take a Holistic BITE Out of Gum Disease


 1 Greatly reduce your risk for a heart attack or stroke. A clean and healthy mouth can help ward off certain medical conditions.Numerous studies have linked tooth loss and gum infections with an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, pre-term births and poorly controlled diabetes. It is wise to recognize the signs and symptoms of gum disease and include a complete dental evaluation as part of your overall health check.

2 Update your medical doctors about your oral health. An active periodontal infection may make you more vulnerable to a very serious bacterial infection throughout your system. The condition of your gums can have an effect on the successful outcome of cardiac surgeries and catheterizations, joint and organ replacements and kidney dialysis.When undergoing any surgical procedure, it's important to inform the doctors and nurses of your dental condition, and history of oral surgeries and periodontal treatments.
3 Clear out the germs before any operation. If you will be having general anesthesia, germs from your mouth can take a ride on the intubation tube into your lungs and enter into your bloodstream.The likelihood of systemic infection is greatly reduced when billions of bacteria in plaque and calculus are removed with a professional dental cleaning prior to your surgery.
4 Pay close attention to bleeding puffy gums, bad breath or shifting teeth. It is estimated that 90% of all systemic diseases have signs and symptoms that show up in the mouth. Brushing, rinsing and flossing help with grooming, but there may be underlying imbalances in your body giving you these warning signs. Even if you have no other obvious symptoms and rarely see a physician, for the sake of your health, put regular dental checkups on your calendar.
