Article Title: What is your mouth trying to tell you
This health news article explains just how connect your mouth is with you entire body. While many individuals believe that their oral health is separate from that of their general health, there are many areas where the two blend together.
Your mouth is the window to the rest of your body. It can tell you things that you never knew about the rest of your health including:
- Monitoring Your Tongue- when your tongue is pale in color, it could mean that you are anemic (iron-deficient) and experience depleted energy levels.
- Dry Mouth- if you have dry mouth, then you can be at risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and oral yeast infections. Talk to Dr. Schneider if you are experiencing dry mouth so he can help to find a solution for you.
- Puffy Gums- if your gums are swollen, puffy, or bright red in color, then you might be facing gum disease. Visiting your dentist regularly can help prevent gum disease from forming into periodontal disease.
