What Does Your Mouth Say about Your Health!


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/22/AR2009062201657.html

This is a great article talking about what a good dentist will see inside your mouth and how it correlates with your overall health 

beef red gums: heart disease
bleeding gums: type 2 diabetes
acid damaged teeth: acid reflux
black spots on x-rays: osteoporosis
big tongue: sleep apnea
swollen gums often bleeding: pregnancy I remember bleeding more when pregnant its related to the high levels of oestrogen this also causes the glow!
thin upper teeth and enamel erosion: bulimia

So make sure you keep up with your annual exam its more than just your teeth!

Oh and a little reminder about the giveaway I will judge it on saturday 



Rebecca, oh and my baby is so much better today LOL

  9. wow, very insightful. I don't have many problems with my mouth, but I do have some enamel problems...from whitening!! I used whitening strips for about 3 months and my teeth became super sensitive. My dentist told me it ruined my enamel :( But my teeth are sparkling white!

  17. So glad to hear your baby is better. Very interesting info here. I'm suffering with painful TMJ lately. No fun. For a while you could hear my jaw crack all the way across the room. Getting better, but slowly.
