How Dental Care Improves Your Overall Health

When our patients think of ways to stay physically and mentally healthy, we imagine that most of them think of physical exercise, a healthy well-balanced diet, and engaging in activities to reduce stress. These are all important activities that we do hope are at the forefront of our patients’ minds. However, often overlooked is the important role that a healthy mouth and smile can play in maintaining your overall good health.

Each year more and more ER visits can be attributed to dental problems, problems that preventative dental treatment could have avoided. Regular professional exams and cleanings, paired with adequate at home dental hygiene habits can prevent infection, eating and breathing problems as well as help manage your emotional health.

Tooth decay is an all too common condition, but when detected early can be easily treated with a dental filling. If decay is not treated properly then a patient can quickly require the need for a more painful and costly root canal surgery or even an extraction and implant. These conditions can all have a domino effect that leads to painful chewing resulting in poor nutrition, difficulty swallowing or breathing, and cosmetic imperfections that can lead to emotional concerns for patients.

Additionally, advanced tooth decay leads to more bacteria in your mouth and therefore a higher possibility for infection of your gums, throat, mouth, ears and even sinuses.

Don’t succumb to unnecessary illness and health concerns when such a simple solution exists in proper preventative dental care. Contact Dental Solutions today to schedule your next professional exam and cleaning.
