We all go to our Pearland dentist for check-ups and toothaches, but there are other less-obvious issues that your dentist can help you with. Today in the Pearland Dental Blog, we would like to highlight some of the most common oral conditions that should be discussed with your dentist.
Attention Pearland dental patients: brushing twice daily may help lower your risk of heart disease. Texas scientists, dentists, and cardiologists have known for many years that there is a link between inflammation in the mouth (gum disease) and heart problems. However, a recent study analyzed oral health habits and heart disease risk. Science Daily reported on the study which was published in the British Medical Journal.
Malocclusions (bite problems) include overbites, underbites and crossbites. Jaw alignment disorders restrict proper chewing, talking, and swallowing. They can also cause teeth to shift around in the mouth. Pearland dentistry patients with bite problems are at a greater risk for tooth decay and periodontal disease because bite misalignment often makes it difficult to maintain proper oral hygiene.
