It is said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. And, professionally speaking, your teeth tell the story of your health. Signs of trouble can be bad breath, red, swollen or bleeding gums, yellowing teeth, spots on teeth, loose or cracked teeth, large gaps between teeth or teeth that have fallen out.
What Do These Signs Indicate?
Many times the most concerning health issues can be seen through the condition of your oral health.
Oral health can deteriorate with physical ailments such as heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, cancer, thyroid disease and so many others. There are actual stories of people’s lives being saved because their dentist was able to diagnose more serious physical health issues with a simple oral health exam.
Our bodies are intelligent machines and our teeth are one of the most important parts of the machine. Teeth perform the important task of chewing and mashing our food in a way that aids in healthy digestion to nourish our entire body. Our teeth are also like a big billboard. We can flash a smile and let someone know that they have made us happy, pleased us in some way or given us something to laugh about. That is where our teeth become a way of communication without words.
If the health of your teeth has been compromised in any way, this should be a red-flag telling you to visit your dentist as soon as possible.
