Surprising links Between Women’s Oral Health And Whole Body Health

     Modern society embraces the beauty of all women regardless of shape or skin color: healthy is the new beautiful. Unfortunately, not many understand the importance of oral health and the influence it plays on women’s general well-being. In recent years, there has been increasing evidence that connects oral health and general health. Research has suggested that gum disease could lead to more serious health issues such as premature birth defects during pregnancy, stroke or heart disease.
Protecting your teeth might be more important than you think—and not just for aesthetic reasons like white teeth and a bright smile! When a woman takes proper care of her teeth it is an investment in her future—a way of maintaining the health of her body or perhaps even the health of an unborn child. “There are a number of dental factors which effect the body,” relates Dr. Adam Tan of Georgian Dental.

Healthy is the new beautiful.

The hormonal fluctuations that come during different stages of women’s lives have a greater effect on oral health than is commonly understood. Puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause can all cause occurrences of the following at different degrees of severity:

  • dry mouth
  • changes in taste
  • cold sores
  • canker soresgum disease

While I was researching patient satisfaction studies on dentures, i came across this article on a ‘denture’ that was swallowed by a patient but was later retrieved by endoscopy. The ‘denture,’ also known as a ‘fixed denture’ appears to have failed, debonded and then swallowed while the patient was asleep.

This underscores the importance of maintenance care if you have any form of a prosthesis in your mouth. Regardless of its classification of bonded, fixed, removable, etc., a regularly scheduled maintenance is de rigeure, even with implant retained dentures or screw retained implant prosthetics. All patients with prosthetics should be on a three to four times a year follow-up interval to ascertain that all is in good health. With All-on-4® prosthetics, an ideally trained Registered Dental Hygienist may help clean the fixed prosthetic device AFTER it has been retrieved by a qualified dental professional. Those fixated prosthetics will need the retentive screws that hold them in replaced, typically after they’ve been removed for maintenance for about a year and a half.
