Elgin Dentistry: The Body-Mouth Connection

At David Rice DDS in Elgin IL, we often treat dental patients with tooth and gum problems and helping with preventative dentistry. There are many common medical conditions that pose a risk to oral health.

  1. Diabetes patients with high blood glucose often have a higher risk of dental issues. If you have diabetes, contact us immediately for a customized dental plan that can adhere to your health requirements.
  2. Persistent dry mouth due to an inadequate amount of saliva can accelerate tooth decay, and can even cause gum disease, which can, in turn, trigger chronic bad breath. Many medications used by thousands of patients, including those for high-blood pressure and depression, cause dry mouth. This side effect is not only unpleasant, it is dangerous. Anti-depressants (especially SSRI’s) and anti-psychotic drugs can also trigger tooth-grinding – also known as bruxism.
  3. Acid reflux in children and adults is associated with a host of dental problems such as decay and periodontal disease.

At David Rice DDS in Elgin IL , we help dental patients prevent problems associated with medical conditions that sometimes seem unrelated to dental health. Regular professional dental care is essential for oral health, and an important part of your overall physical health. Patients from Bartlet, South Elgin, and Wayne come to us for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
