Frequently Asked Questions
How does my dental health affect my overall health?
Your dental health directly can affect your overall health. Many may incorrectly think that maintaining oral health is just important for keeping teeth looking white and breath smelling fresh. Our mouths are teeming with bacteria. This is normal and most are harmless. Daily brushing and flossing keep the levels of bacteria under control. When oral care is lacking, however, problems can occur.
The dental team at Royal Family Dental cares about each patient, and keeping up with your oral health not only can keep your teeth and mouth feeling great, but your body feeling great, also. Without proper oral health care, like daily brushing and flossing, bacteria can cause oral infections, tooth decay and gum disease. Unhealthy gums have been shown to affect your health in a variety of ways. Those areas of concern include:
- Heart disease
- Respiratory infections
- Diabetic complications
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Prostate Problems
