If Your Teeth Could Talk …
Your Mouth Offers Clues to Disorders and Disease;
Dentist Plays a Larger Role in Patient Care
Your eyes may be the window to your soul, but your mouth provides an
even better view of the body as a whole.
Some of the earliest signs of diabetes, cancer, immune disorders, hormone
imbalances and drug issues show up in the gums, teeth and tongue -
sometimes long before a patient knows anything is wrong.
There’s also growing evidence that oral health problems, particularly gum
disease, can harm a patient’s general health as well, raising the risk of
diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and pneumonia.
The Good News...
“There is lots of data showing a direct correlation between
inflammation in the mouth and inflammation in the body,” says Dr.
Shabs Patel, dentist at Magicsmiles. “Recent studies also show that
treating hidden gum inflammation improves circulation, reduces body
inflammation and can even reduce the need for insulin in people with
diabetes. By reducing your inflammation, you can increase your day
to day enjoyment in life. You owe it to yourself and your family.”
