Can You Die From Poor Dental Health?

Posted on 4/15/2024 by Weo Admin
Poor dental health is a risk factor for many deadly killer diseases that have the potential to kill. These include heart disease, diabetes, and oral cancer. Can Dental Disorders Kill? Dental disorders, including tooth decay, periodontitis, bad breath, cracked teeth, receding gums, and root infections, cause great discomfort. However, you are not likely to die from any of these disorders. According to the Journal of Clinical Diagnosis and Research, there is a slightly higher risk of death when surgical procedures are involved, with anesthesia-related complications during tooth extractions being the main cause. When Can Dental Disorders Kill? When left unattended, most dental disorders have the potential to kill. The connection between dental disorders and death is pathogens from the mouth entering the bloodstream and causing infections in other organs. Tooth decay and gum disease breed dangerous bacteria that easily enter the bloodstream through blood vessels. Once in the bloodstream, the bacteria can attack and destroy organs, causing life-threatening disorders. Heart Disease Research has linked dental carries to arterial plaque and cardiovascular disease. When bacteria from the mouth enter the bloodstream, they harden and clog arteries, which can cause cardiovascular disorders. Also, bacteria easily stick to platelets, forming deadly blood clots that can interrupt blood flow to your heart. According to the Harvard Medical School, people with gum disease have a 70 percent chance of developing heart disease. Heart disease may take time to develop, but it is a deadly silent killer. Diabetes According to the Eurasian Journal of Medicine, inflammation caused by oral bacteria in the mouth and other parts of the body interferes with how the body synthesizes insulin. This increases the risk of diabetes, which increases the susceptibility to gum disease. Maintaining proper oral hygiene is very important when you have diabetes. Oral Cancer Researchers from Finland found a connection between the enzyme Treponema Denticola chymotrypsin-like proteinase (Td-CTLP), which is commonly found in the mouth, and cancer. Adequate amounts of this enzyme have been found in oral tumors. This enzyme, which is naturally found in the mouth, is also the main boosting agent for gum disease. Closing Remarks Poor dental health affects your overall health, so proper dental hygiene is important. Regular dental checks are recommended for the timely identification of life-threatening disorders....
