Your oral health and general health are more closely connected than you realize. Dental problems can often affect your well-being, and may be an indicator of a separate medial problem. Examples of this include periodontal (gum) disease, oral cancer, and tooth decay. Likewise, existing medical conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure, and the medications used in providing treatments, may affect the condition of your mouth. Be alert to any changes in the condition of your mouth so that you can quickly identify problems and seek treatment from your dentist or from a dental specialist.

For more information on these and other topics, contact your dentist and schedule a consultation. Your dentist and hygienist will be able to provide you with additional information as well as recommendations to dental specialists as needed.
