There’s no way around the fact that dental health and overall physical health are very much one and the same.
WEST COVINA, Calif. (PRWEB) January 08, 2019
A December 27 article in Fleet Owners warns of possible serious health issues among the large number of US truck drivers who skip regular dental care and who may even ignore unpleasant dental symptoms until they become medical emergencies. A-Z Dental Care says that regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene are essential for adults who wish to maintain their quality of life, no matter their occupation. The office adds that, at home or on the road, the basics of good oral care include daily brushing, flossing and regular checkups with a skilled and experienced dentist to assess the teeth. According to the West Covina based clinic, there’s no way around the fact that dental health and overall physical health are very much one and the same.
A-Z Dental Care said that it works closely with patients from all walks of like. Over time its lead dentist, Dr. Mirhamid Salek, has seen firsthand that regular dental checkups and cleanings catch small issues before they grow into more serious problems…and more serious problems, such as oral cancers, before they become life-threatening. The offices adds that, while it understands that patients are typically on a budget and may want to avoid dental costs, keeping to a dental schedule is the best way to keep dental costs manageable.
The increasing number of baby-boomers often have very specific dental needs that deviate from younger populations, says A-Z Dental Care. Dry mouth, for example, can lead to severe tooth decay if left untreated which, over time, can lead to severe periodontal (gum) issues which can increase the risk of numerous serious diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Thus, the office notes that what seems to be a small problem can become a serious affliction if dental care is not obtained quickly.
As medical science grows more advanced and technology allows a comprehensive look at the body, A-Z Dental Care says that the evidence is now extremely clear that oral and physical health are very intimately related. For example, studies have shown that heart health, and the plaque associated with heart disease, are connected to poor oral health. The office says that patients should not be fearful about this but should concentrate on sticking to a healthy routine. Regular cleanings not only remove plaque but help maintain physical well-being as well as healthy smiles. The office adds that yearly exams and x-rays are essential tools to evaluate the needs of each patient and spot problems early.
