Our Dental Health
Preventing diseases is our goal!
Here we teach you more about how important it is to take care of your mouth and what happens if you don't.
Problems caused by
by poor oral health
A dental check-up is recommended every 3 months, since hormonal changes can cause bleeding gums, which creates an acidic environment in the mouth and increases the proliferation of bacteria, which can cause the baby to have a low birth weight, or a premature baby, and there have even been cases in which there is fetal death due to chronic infections in the oral cavity that are not treated in time.
Having periodontal disease can cause people to be unable to control their hypertension, either with medication, which can lead to serious vascular problems. In addition, studies say that stopping dental prevention in early adulthood can lead to future hypertension.
Obesity causes inflammation of the gums, cavities, bad breath and loss of teeth. This causes more health problems, since it does not generate a good chewing and causes poor digestion, which causes more problems in the digestive system. In addition, not brushing your teeth more than once a day is directly related to developing obesity at any stage of life.
People who have gum disease and have diabetes can have more serious complications managing their blood glucose level, which can lead to further deterioration of the gums. This causes both diseases to become increasingly more serious if periodontal disease is not prevented or properly treated.
Proper prevention and cleaning of teeth can prevent older adults from reducing their mortality due to pneumonia. In addition, ventilator-assisted patients who have adequate dental health significantly reduce their time on the ventilator.
Having periodontal disease for many years is associated with patients developing Alzheimer's disease and just having periodontal disease can generate or accelerate the development of a neuroinflammatory phenomenon seen in Alzheimer's patients. This is a very serious problem for people who develop these types of diseases and are not treated properly.
Importance of your Dental Health
Whether it is heart disease or diabetes, if your dental hygiene is not adequate, so will be your overall health. If dental disease is allowed to get out of control, it can cause problems throughout the body, not immediately, but over a long period of time. That is why it is important to have preventive dental care every 6 months to treat disease at an early stage and prevent disease in general.
Good oral care does not mean brushing and flossing regularly, but making sure you go to the dentist to check internally and externally for any diseases you may have that you do not feel.
To prevent dental diseases we recommend you:
Brush teeth 3 times a day with toothpaste containing 1000ppm fluoride.
Visit your dentist every 6 months and perform stone removal + prophylaxis.
Floss, if possible, after each brushing.
Use mouthwashes to prevent bacterial growth.
Brush your teeth with medium or soft brushes to take care of your gums.
