Detecting Other Health Condition Through Oral Examination

One condition that can be detected through oral examination is the GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease. Frequent acid reflux is one of the reasons behind the erosion of enamel on our teeth. This can lead to tooth decay or worse tooth loss.

A dentist will know if a person is suffering from a serious disease just by looking at the condition of his or her mouth. For example, a gum disease may not just be a simple inflammation. It can increase the severity of oral cancer, precancerous condition, and worsen heart diseases. This is dangerous especially if you are not aware of your own condition.

A dental appointment is also a great opportunity to conduct diabetes screening among undiagnosed patients. This is good news for people who prefers going to the dentist rather than doctors.

By preventing oral problems, you are also preventing other major illness such as pneumonia. A study in Yale proves that brushing and flossing can reduce the risk of acquiring pneumonia.

Many have taken for granted the importance of dental checkups and examination. Semi-annual visits to the dentist is a big hassle for them. However, it is as important as any other physical checkup.
