Oral Health Advice

I am not in good health – actually medically compromised! I am under a doctor’s care, taking several different drugs.

After a recent appointment with my dentist, I was told I have periodontal disease. What is this? How did I get it? How is it treated?

What you are describing is the inter-relationship between oral health and systemic (body) health. Drugs have side effects which can make you more susceptible to gum disease, tooth decay, bone loss or damage.

The problem goes both ways. Mouth disease can affect general health as well.

Diabetes, cardiovascular disease (both heart and blood vessels) lung problems are just a few of the areas of the body which can be related to periodontal disease. The same type of bacteria and inflammation found in your gums are seen in your blood vessels by your heart.

Schedule a consultation with a Periodontist as soon as you can. Your oral problems can be evaluated and if necessary, medical clearance from your physician will be obtained.Working together, your team will make sure your dental health is restored. Strict recall appointments is strongly recommended after periodontal treatment is completed.

  1. Prescription drugs are one of the things that cause bad health. All allopathic doctors are quacks that poison people with prescription drugs. Go to a naturopathic doctor that follows the hippocratic oath to do no harm and the best dentists are holistic dentists who don't poison their patients with mercury fillings, fluoride, or unsafe procedures such as root canals that cause infections throughout the body.
