Oral Hygiene

Importance of oral hygiene!
Research is increasingly showing a strong relationship between dental care, specifically gum disease, and various medical conditions. Gum disease has been linked to increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, premature birth and low birth-weight babies.

The two main diseases to affect oral health are:

Tooth Decay
Periodontal (Gum Disease)

A standardized oral assessment model:

Bleeding -gums and mucosa
Redness – Gums margins, tongue, antibiotic stomatitis
Ulceration – Size, Shape, an infected herpetic
Saliva – Xerostomia, hypersalivation,
Halitosis – Acidotic or Infected
Debris – any visible plague or foreign particles

If are suffering from any of the above, then it’s time to schedule the appointment with a dentist for necessary treatment.
