A Smile and Your Health | San Francisco, CA | Steven Baldwin, DDS
dental health and a great smile have a direct impact on your overall
health. Dental diseases tend to be chronic (long term) and highly related
to toxic bacteria. There are a number of toxic compounds produced by the
disease process, which further exacerbate and expand the infections. Even
with mild gingivitis (gum Infection) the actual surface area of the tissues
involved may be the size of your hand. Due to the very vascular (lots of
blood vessels) nature of the oral tissues these harmful bacteria, toxins, and
chemicals enter the blood stream and are carried all over the body. There
are strong correlations between even mild dental infections with heart disease,
stroke and diabetes. Some researchers are suggesting that upwards of 40%
of all organ diseases have a dental origin or relationship. Getting even
one cleaning a year with regular effective home care can reduce your risks for
a number of serious diseases.
