How Dentist Can Know What your Overall Health Is Like


Whatever is going on in your body can show changes in your oral health. Whatever is going on in your mouth can show what is also happening in your body.

Your dentist is trained to look for signs that there is something happening in your overall health. A few examples of symptoms and illnesses they lookout for are:

Diabetes and gum disease

Gum disease is directly connected to diabetes. Diabetics should also be aware that gum disease can make blood sugar harder to control and increase your risk of complications.

Heart disease and oral health

Studies show that people with gum disease are at increased risk of heart disease. Oral health is also connected to heart health. Many patients have to take antibiotics before dental procedures because of existing heart conditions. In fact, gum disease may make you more likely to have a heart attack or stroke. By taking care of your teeth and gums, you’re also caring for your heart.

Pregnancy and dental care

Pregnant women with gum disease are more likely to experience premature labor compared to women with healthy gums. The good news is that pregnant women who care for their mouths are helping to protect their babies against cavity-causing bacteria, too.


Oral health is an important part of overall wellness. Unfortunately, too many people neglect their oral health due to the high costs of dental plan coverage. A low-cost dental insurance plan can ensure that you and your family maintain optimum oral health at a surprisingly manageable monthly premium. Your personalized family dental coverage plan will be designed specifically to your needs by our dental insurance brokers.
