Dental Problems Could Be A Sign of Bigger Health Issues
Research has shown that the health of your mouth is a reflection of your body’s overall health. In fact, according to the Academy of General Dentistry, there is a link between health complications such as a stroke and heart disease and oral health issues like gum (periodontal) disease. Regular appointments at your dental clinic in Portland, Maine should be a part of your overall health care regimen. Our Portland Maine dentist practice will make every effort to ensure your teeth are in good working order, fix cavities and offer non-judgmental advice for a better smile. We use modern dentistry techniques to improve and enhance the health of your teeth and oral needs.
Additional research has shown that 90% of diseases involving multiple organs or the whole body show oral manifestations such as dry mouth, mouth ulcers, and excessive gum problems including swelling or frequent bleeding.
As a result of this direct connection between your oral health and your body’s overall health, your dentist is often the first of defense against potentially life-altering sickness and disease.

- Gum Disease – Gingivitis and Periodontitis
