Did you know your oral health offers plenty of clues about your overall health? According to the American Dental Association, your mouth is a window to the rest of your body.
When you protect your mouth, you are protecting yourself against dozens of serious illnesses.
At Stonewall Dental Associates in Manassas, Virginia, Dr. Zamakhchari and Dr. Nasir are experts at helping you maintain optimum oral health to keep you smiling in good health at all times.
The mouth is filled with millions of bacteria that can cause tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Researchers have found links between periodontal disease and other health problems like strokes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension. Pregnant women suffering from periodontitis run an increased risk of delivering preterm or low-birth-weight babies.
Even though further research is required, studies show that many systemic health concerns like AIDS, Sjogren’s syndrome, and diabetes typically present themselves in the form of lesions or other oral health concerns.
With every new study, it is becoming increasingly apparent that a robust oral health routine is crucial in shielding yourself against countless bacteria and diseases.
Our dentists at Stonewall Dental Associates recommend you follow these steps to protect yourself from illnesses:
Periodontitis can have various symptoms from swollen or reddish gums, pain while brushing, bad breath, loose teeth, and a change in how your dentures or oral appliances fit.
If you notice any of these symptoms, contact our dentists at Stonewall Dental Associates in Manassas, Virginia, right away. They can take adequate steps to prevent further damage to the gum tissue.
