Take care of your teeth if you want your heart and kidneys to be healthy!
How can dental disease affect your overall health?
If you are interested in this topic, it is useful to know:
According to dentists, a bad tooth is suitable environment for the rapid multiplication of harmful bacteria. They may spread throughout the whole body through the blood vessels of the head and neck.
Maintaining healthy teeth is important not only for preventing a toothache but also for protecting other organs from the harmful consequences that teeth decay may have. Dentists warn that bad toot can be compared to the time bomb that scatters bacteria throughout the body and spread disease.
Bacteria, in fact millions of them, both useful and harmful, are located in everyone’s mouth. They are equal in normal conditions, but if we have bad teeth then the beneficial bacteria can become harmful to our health.
Dental diseases can appear and leave some serious consequences for our body, especially for those who are under a lot of stress if their immune system is weakened, if they have a cold, if they are exposed to some great physical stress or if they have some kind of eating disorder.
Harmful tooth roots that are not removed
They are extremely harmful when the patient does not go to the doctor in order to eliminate the pain despite severe toothache or when a toothache is just smoldering. Therefore, it is advised that you should go to the dentist as soon as the tooth reacts to hot, cold, sour taste or a touch. These signs indicate that the tooth is already sick. If the tooth is not treated at this stage, even more dental disease is possible as well as the spreading of harmful bacteria to other organs.
The research shows that the bad teeth particularly influence the development of heart and respiratory disease and disease of blood vessels, kidneys, muscles, bones, joints, eyes and skin. Dangerous teeth states are also teeth roots that are not removed, periodontal pockets and partially impacted teeth.
Inflammation is generally expanding rapidly
According to the experience of the dentists, the biggest traps are the situations in which the toothache stops on its own.
- When the pain stops, the patient thinks that his problem is solved and that there is no reason to go to the doctor. However, in the rotting remains of the tooth there are a lot of bacteria. Such an environment is very suitable for their rapid reproduction. Then they start spreading through the top of the roots and move to the dental bone and periosteum. This leads to the purulent inflammation and the temperature occurs as well as general signs of infection. Pus can be spread in different directions and it can also break the bone and create a well-known fistula in the jaw and go through the face skin. The worst thing happens if the pus from the jawbone and surrounding tissue gets into the blood. This can lead to the poisoning or sepsis, which sometimes results in death.
Periodontitis must be treated on time!
Periodontitis is the most widespread chronic disease of the gums and tooth-supporting apparatus after dental caries. Its ultimate stage leads to the teeth loss. However, it is not a well-known fact that people who do not treat periodontal disease have a higher risk of developing heart disease, osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis. This results from the large amount of bacteria in periodontal pockets that sometimes slowly and sometimes aggressively destroy bone and tooth-supporting apparatus. They go through the blood to other organs and damage them and that kind spreading is called the focal infection. The spreading is significantly supported by the fact that the maxillofacial region has the best circulation in the body. In order to prevent all of these problems, the periodontitis must be treated on time. Periodontitis is significantly increasing in recent times.
During the dental examination, dentist can detect systemic disease based on changes in the oral cavity of the patients.
