GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Did you know the health of your teeth can affect so many other aspects of your body? Studies have shown that women who have gum disease can also suffer from an assortment of other health problems. Dr. Alexis Neuman of Advanced Dental Smile visited the eightWest studio to give viewers more insights on the topic.
If you have periodontal disease you are more likely to:
• Have a preterm baby or a baby with a low birth weight. There is also a chance that bad bacteria from the oral cavity can be passed onto the fetus.
• Is more common than cervical cancer, and is linked to HPV
If you suffer from migraines it could be from:
• Clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth. This can also lead to needed extensive dental work if left untreated.
If you are looking to take years off of your face:
• Think about something as simple as teeth whitening. Teeth whiting is a much cheaper alternative then expensive creams or surgical treatments and can take years off of your face.
