Good dental health means having healthy teeth and gums. Maintaining it is something that you have to work at every day. It can be a real balancing act: using the right oral care products, your personal oral care habits, and seeing us at Neal C. Johnson DMD in Billings MT for regular checkups.
Did you know your dental health can be impacted by your general health? There are many common medical conditions that pose a risk to oral health. Just a few examples:
- Diabetes patients with high blood glucose often have a higher risk of dental issues.
- A persistent dry mouth due to an inadequate amount of saliva can accelerate tooth decay, cause or contribute to gum disease, and trigger chronic bad breath. Many common medications can cause dry mouth.
- Acid reflux in children and adults is associated with a host of dental problems, such as decay and periodontal disease.
