Your oral health is a big factor in the rest of your physical health. From diabetes to cancer, maintaining good oral health and getting regular checkups is associated with lower risks, including those related to blood pressure. Many individuals aren’t aware that poor dental hygiene can lead to high blood pressure in the long run. With a trusted dentist, you can explore these risks and learn what it takes to improve your health. Distinctive Dental Solutions is here to guide you. Our dentists help patients maintain healthy teeth and, in turn, better overall wellbeing.
Hypertension is one of the most common health conditions in America, and the effects are well documented. An individual with a reading over 140/90 is at a higher risk for stroke, heart disease, and many other cardiovascular issues. But what about your oral health? It’s true that poor dental hygiene can lead to tooth decay and permanent tooth loss from decay or periodontal disease. As it turns out, many of the same diseases that affect the mouth can have systemic impacts on the rest of your body, including high blood pressure through the creation of inflammation in the body’s tissues that, in turn, creates constriction of blood vessels and ultimately high blood pressure. That’s why it’s important to maintain healthy levels alongside regular dental care.
In other cases, side effects caused by antihypertensive medications can lead to dental problems as well as trouble controlling blood pressure for those who have already been diagnosed with hypertension. For most individuals, however, the matter is preventative. Oral health problems can cause cardiovascular complications like increased blood pressure, which then increases the risk for larger issues. Visiting a dentist can solve these issues or circumvent them altogether by building an individualized care plan.
