Smile and I will tell you if you're healthy!
The majority of the people believe poor dental hygiene causes only 2 health problems: bad breath and cavities. Other than that, nothing truly bad can happen if you forget to wash your teeth or if you neglect them. Some people don't even know what tartar is, how it looks and what dangers it poses to our health. This is why we, at Copperstone Dental, have made a personal goal out of raising awareness on this topic.
SE Calgary dental hygiene delivers top services and aims at lowering the risk of disease coming from poor dental care. What type of diseases, you might be asking? Let's see:
- Cardiovascular disease - It is extremely common to people with poor oral health and it is due to the accumulation of bacteria around the teeth, which will affect the gums, cause periodontitis and reach the bloodstream, where they will clog the arteries, increasing the risk of endocarditis and stroke.
- Respiratory problems - The accumulation of bacteria in the mouth can reach the lungs and could cause a wide range of aggravated respiratory infections like bronchitis and pneumonia.
- Aggravate diabetes - Gum infections can prove to be a breeding ground for bacterial organisms that could worsen the symptoms of diabetes by messing up with the blood sugar levels.
- Fertility problems in women - Studies have identified links between oral hygiene and fertility in women. Not only that women with precarious oral hygiene have problems getting pregnant, but they also have problems maintaining a healthy pregnancy altogether.
- Erectile Dysfunction - Men are risk of experiencing ED, simply because of poor dental health. And it's all because of the chronic periodontal disease (CPD), which will allow bacteria to infect the bloodstream and diminish its flow towards the genital area. Erections will become increasingly harder to achieve.
No wonder SE Calgary dental hygiene is so important in the grander scheme of things.
