World Oral Health Day in Richardson, TX

In March, we celebrate Word Oral Health Day. World Oral Health Day 2020 logo

Dr. Larry Korenman is dedicated to improving your overall health through dentistry.

It’s called the “Mouth-Body Connection,” and it means that poor dental health can severely deteriorate your body, especially your lungs and heart, and it can also lead to a host to other conditions including migraines, Alzheimer’s disease and even some Cancers.

Poor dental health is often caused by gum disease.

Dr. Korenman and his team are dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of gum disease and they check all their patients for it.

If you are diagnosed with gum disease, Dr. Korenman can design a treatment plan to help you keep it under control.

How are migraines related to your mouth?

This blog post is the 10th in a series of articles to inform our readers about the connection between your oral health and your overall health.

 

It’s called the “Mouth-Body Connection,” and it means that poor dental health can severely deteriorate your body, especially your lungs and heart, and it can also lead to a host to other conditions including migraines, Alzheimer’s disease and even some Cancers.

 

What is a migraine headache? migraine

Migraine is a chronic disorder characterized by recurrent moderate to severe headaches, usually affecting one side of the head and accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound.

 

True migraine headaches are vascular in nature. Inflammation in the mouth and especially in the presence of gum disease and infections affects all the blood vessels.

The link tmj pain 2between migraines and TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder)

  • When the jaws and teeth do not align or work harmoniously together, the patient can have neck and shoulder pain which can lead to headaches, and migraines.
  • The bite/function of the teeth could be negatively impacting the jaw joint.

Teeth that are out of alignment are more difficult to keep clean which can also contribute to gum disease.

 

Gum disease not only leads to severe oral health disorders, but can exacerbate overall health conditions, such as diabetes or respiratory disorders.

 

TMJ and your dentist

If you experience chronic, daily headaches (or even one a month) and no one has been able to resolve your issue, consider seeing Dr. Korenman.

To determine treatment, Dr. Korenman uses diagnostic technology to relax the jaw muscles. Once he knows where the muscles and jaw are most comfortable, he can apply an orthotic (or “mouth guard”) to maintain the comfortable position. For some, establishing an optimal position for long-term comfort may require wearing the orthotic for several weeks to several months.

How is heart disease related to your mouth?

This blog post is part of a series of Total Health Dental Care articles to inform our readers about the connection between your oral health and your overall health.

 

It’s called the “Mouth-Body Connection,” and it means that poor dental health can severely deteriorate your body, especially your lungs and heart, and it can also lead to a host of other conditions including Alzheimer’s disease and even some Cancers.

 

Gum Disease – The Silent EpidemicThe-link-between-your-gums-and-systemic-conditions

 

The number one cause of death is inflammation.

 

The number one cause of inflammation is gum disease.

 

The startling news is that 80% of people have Gum Disease and DO NOT KNOW IT! There is usually no pain involved for people until extremely late in the degeneration. Many gum problems will go unnoticed until they are diagnosed by a dentist.

 

So, how is heart disease related to your mouth?

heart-gum-diseases image

Several studies exist to explain the link between gum disease and heart disease.

 

  1. Oral bacteria can affect the heart via the blood stream and then attaching to fatty plaques in the coronary arteries (heart blood vessels) and contributing to clot formation.
  2. As the body fights the inflammation caused by periodontal (gum) disease, swelling of the arteries can occur which contributes to their deterioration.

 

Researchers have found that people with periodontal disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease.

 

Medications for Heart Disease and Dry Mouthdry mouth photo

If you take any medication for dry mouth including blood pressure medications and diuretics, you have probably experienced a common side effect of these popular medications: Dry Mouth.

The combination of two or more of these medications dramatically increase dry-mouth effects.

Dry mouth is a growing problem in dentistry.  On a daily basis, Dr. Korenman and his staff see patients who suffer from dry mouth and the issues associated with dry mouth including tooth decay, gum disease and mouth sores.

The Good News for Heart Patients

The good news is that Dr. Korenman and his team are dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of gum disease and they check all their patients for it.

If you are diagnosed with gum disease, Dr. Korenman can design a treatment plan to help you overcome it and then to keep it under control.

Additionally, if you suffer from Dry Mouth, Dr. Korenman provides the following tips for treating this dangerous condition:

  • He highly recommends Effervess Oral Care products, which can help relieve the symptoms of dry mouth caused by medications. (Available at Loveable Smiles and Amazon.) The line includes toothpaste and a whitening gel.Effervess-all natural aloe vera Toothpaste
  • Swish with water in addition to drinking it.

Complete Health Dentistry in Dallas, TX

There are different phases in dentistry throughout history.Dr. Larry Korenman at the forefront of preventative healthcare.

Post WWII – Dentists were able to insert filings and learned how to save a tooth rather than extract it.

70s – Dentists began to understand that a patient’s gums are the foundation of our mouths and the importance of having healthy gums.

Age of Technology – Computers and technology entered the dental office giving dentists the ability to do same day crowns as well as use lasers to help tissues to heal faster and painlessly.

90s – Era of cosmetic dentistry. Veneers and bonding could help transform someone’s smile.

Today – Complete Health Dentistry – There is now enough research to confirm that your mouth talks to your body.

We no longer concentrate on your 28-32 teeth.

We now know there is a very strong communication between your mouth and your body.

Inflammation in your mouth leads to inflammation in your body.

Gum Disease and Heart Diseaseheart-gum-diseases image

We know that active gum disease dumps bacteria and inflammation by-products into your bloodstream and has a detrimental effect on your heart and blood vessels.

You can’t just focus on either your gum disease or your cardio vascular disease. You have to treat them both because your gum disease is making your heart disease worse and vice versa.

Diabetes-and-Your-Dental-Health imageGum Disease and Diabetes

It’s very clear that Diabetes has a very strong relationship to gum disease.

If you have gum disease and your gums bleed, you are sending bacterial and inflammation by-products through your blood vessels damaging those blood vessels and exacerbating your Diabetic condition.

Research has found significant levels of bacteria from the oral cavities embedded in blood vessels all over the body in patients who have active gum disease.

Complete Health Dentistry

This knowledge puts a greater importance on dentistry than ever before.

We are fortunate to be able to be in an industry that is at the forefront of preventative healthcare.

Seeing Loveable Smiles twice a year, ideally, so that we can use our incredible screening aids to check you for gum disease will help you have a happier and healthier life.

We are proud to call ourselves a leader in health for your future.
