Routine Teeth Cleaning is Vital to Total Body Health

Dental Hygiene

How long has it been since your dental hygienist gave you a teeth cleaning? If your answer is anything more than six months, get your dentist on the line. Routine teeth cleanings are an essential part of optimal dental care. A routine teeth cleaning removes harmful bacteria and tartar build-up from your teeth (getting everything that your toothbrush and floss cannot reach) and offer added benefits for early diagnosis and treatment of whole body disease. That’s right—your dental health is closely linked to your total-body health. Learn more about how important that visit to the dental hygienist for a teeth cleaning is to your teeth and your entire body.

The importance of routine teeth cleanings cannot be overstated. Your bi-annual teeth cleaning with a dental hygienist can be a crucial opportunity for early diagnosis and treatment of a host of chronic diseases. Research from around the globe has found conclusive evidence that poor oral health is an early sign of chronic whole-body diseases.

Oral health is often a direct result of excessive inflammation. Inflammation can begin in the mouth and float to other areas of the body, or it can begin in the heart or lungs and make its way to the mouth. Either way, red swollen gums and mouth ulcers are cause for concern.

One study found that skipping just one dental care visit each year can up your risk of heart disease by as much as 70 percent. The American Dental Association states that 90 percent of whole-body diseases have oral manifestations. Those are not good odds when it comes preserving your health. Risk of other total body diseases linked to poor oral health include:

  • Diabetes
  • Leukemia
  • Oral cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Lung disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Stroke

Chronic disease isn’t the only concern related to missed dental visits. You may be impacted by other painful experiences and high-risk health concerns:

  • Facial and oral pain. Pain around the face, teeth, and gums is often linked to infections of the gum line, according to the Office of the Surgeon General. This can result in gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, and eventually full-blown gum disease and tooth loss. At present, more than 75 percent of the population is affected by gum disease in the United States.
  • Heart and major organ malfunctions. Infections of the mouth can impact major organs all over the body. Bacterial endocarditis is just one example that poor oral health can contribute to. Endocarditis occurs when inflammation reaches the heart or heart valves, worsening heart disease and causing significant damage to the organ.
  • Issues with digestion. Inflammation in the mouth can lead to intestinal failure, irritable bowel syndrome, and other digestive disorders.

What can you do to protect your health? It’s simple, adhere to routine at-home dental care and don’t miss those bi-annual teeth cleaning appointments with your dental hygienist—it just might save your life.
