Healthy Gums Lead to a Healthy Body

23rd January, 2012

 For many years Dental Professionals have suspected that infections in the mouth are linked in causing problems in other parts of the body.

These Problems which may be caused by or made worse by poor dental health include:

-Heart disease

-Stroke

-Diabetes

-Giving birth to a premature or low birth weight baby

-Respiratory (lung) disease

Although the above may be worrying, The good news is that gum disease is almost entirely preventable and treatable. The sooner the disease is identified the better so it is very important to regularly visit your dentist where he can monitor any changes.

 The tell tale signs of gum disease that you should look out for include inflammed gums causing them to be red, swollen and bleed easily. This is usually evident on brushing and cleaning in between the teeth.

Bad breath,Loose teeth, Unpleasant taste in the mouth and Regular mouth infections are also common signs of untreated gum disease.

An excellent Oral hygeine routine is incrediably important but ultimately Gum disease must be treated by a dental professional. It is very important to regularly visit your dentist and hygienist to assess the mouth as a whole and identify any early signs of gum disease.

Sutton Dentist Supports Only Highest Quality Implants



If you are considering dental implants it is very important you research which type of implants are going to be used. Only choose a dental implant system which is backed by extensive research over many years. Look at the websites of the companies and read about the research involved in the dental implants and their latest products. We are strongly against techniques that are not evidence based.

The current scandal on PIP breast implants relates to non medical grade materials and ultimately a cheaper product. The saying ‘you get what you pay for’ could never be more true. 

If you are missing one, several or all of your teeth, dental implants can provide you with a long lasting and natural solution.

It may be tempting to choose an implant that is significantly cheaper than your own dentist offers, but it is more important for you to choose a well known company, a skilled and experienced dentist and a dental practice that offers personal care dedciated to your needs.

Here at Ninety 2 Dental we only refer our patients to highly trained professionals using the highest quality materials and offering an excellent service and care to our patients ensuring our patients are happy with the end result!
