We have been told to brush our teeth twice and day and remember to floss. Does it really matter? In this video, you will learn why dental health and dental care services are so important.
Many people think that if you feel no pain, then you must be completely healthy. This is not always the case. For example, a a 34 year old had a tooth infection with no pain.
This infection lead to a heart attack. Some experts believe that nearly half of the 630,000 yearly heart attack deaths could be triggered by dental infections. There seems to be many connections just like this between dental health and our overall health. This is why dental care services are so crucial. We may not even realize that we have dental issues unless we are going in for a regular checkup. According to some studies, 47% of Americans over the age of 30 have gum disease. Most don’t realize it. Another unlikely connection is that gum disease makes diabetes worse. Oral issues also contribute to pregnancy complications as well. As you can see, dental health should not be ignored.
