What Your Mouth Tells about Your Health

What Your Mouth Tells about Your HealthPoor dental health is often linked to poor general health. However, even seemingly healthy teeth can reveal valuable information about your health. Dr. Mirani, dentist in Beverly Hills, explains.

1. Irritated, bleeding gums
Inflamed gums that bleed when you brush or floss can be a sign of periodontal disease, an infection that affects the gum tissue and underlying structures. However, they can also be evidence of a hormonal imbalance. Women are particularly prone to sensitive gums during their menstrual cycles and menopause.

2. Tooth damage
Worn, eroded, cracked or breaking teeth may be signs of advanced dental disease. They can also be evidence of GERD, or gastro esophageal reflux disease. GERD is associated with stomach acids washing back up into the mouth, which can weaken and wear down teeth. Damaged teeth can also indicate high levels of stress or anxiety, particularly if you also have headaches, neck pain or other symptoms. Teeth grinding can significantly increase your risk of damaged teeth, and you may be more prone to TMJ disorders.

3. Bad breath
Bad breath is often linked to a malodorous lunch, but it can also be a sign of serious health issues. Kidney and liver disease are associated with chronic bad breath, and diabetes can cause a sweet or fruity odor that is indicative of ketoacidosis.

Any abnormal symptoms should be reported to Dr. Mirani, expert in dental implants in Beverly Hills, who can help you determine the cause and create a treatment plan that will restore your dental health. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
