General Health and Dental Health At Our Spring Hill Dentist and Denture Care Office
Research continues to find major human biological systems are impacted by oral health. Obviously, good digestion begins with proper mastication (the mechanics of grinding or chewing), which means freedom from cavities or weak teeth. Surprisingly though bacteria from inflamed gums or abscesses can travel to the circulatory system, respiratory system, and the nervous system causing atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke, dementia, pneumonia, diabetes and more.
Dental Quality of Life has a fancy name.
So entwined are enjoyment of life and dental health that there’s a term for it— go ahead and Google it: OHRQoL, the acronym that stands for Oral Health-Related Quality of Life.
Oral Health Related Quality of Life |OHRQoL| noun 1. The measure regarding how oral outcomes impact an individual’s perception of his/her well-being and position in life.
Since the smile is one of the first things people notice, dental health and aesthetics are factors in self-image. In fact, surveys find that 99.7% of Americans believe a smile is an important social asset, and 74% believe a great smile is correlated to success.
Finding the Factors in Good Oral Health
- Good oral health means easy, barrier-free and pain-free: biting, chewing, speaking, kissing and smiling with a positive self-image.
- Good oral health means being free from oral cancer, infection, sores, periodontal disease, tooth decay and tooth loss.
- Good oral health means aligned, clean, functioning teeth, gums and tongue.
