Yellowish teeth are the healthiest
The China Dental Laboratory reminds you that people with teeth with this characteristic should pay attention to it
Experts suggest that in addition to developing good living habits and regular dental check-ups in the hospital, daily oral care and health care are more important and the most effective way of prevention.
There are many advertisements for toothpaste on the market. Some of them focus on whitening effects, and some are aimed at anti-allergic and heat-clearing effects. A survey shows that 90% of people choose toothpaste based on advertisements. Experts believe that this is a serious misunderstanding. Medically, it is believed that yellowish teeth are healthy. Excessive pursuit of whitening is a psychological effect, but it will sacrifice dental health.
2. Teeth and cancer: A number of studies have shown that dentists can play an early warning role
If the gum wound does not heal for a week or two, or the mucosa in a certain area is white or red for a long time, instead of the normal pink, you need to seek medical attention to rule out the possibility of oral cancer.
Methamphetamine addiction symptoms, methamphetamine addiction, also known as "ice mouth", (people addicted to drugs) the outer layer of teeth will have a unique symptom of corrosion.
3. Lack of teeth can easily induce tongue cancer
Tongue cancer mostly occurs at the edge of the tongue, followed by the tip of the tongue, the back of the tongue, and the base of the tongue. It is often ulcerated or infiltrating. Generally, it has a high degree of malignancy, rapid growth, strong infiltration, and often affects the tongue muscles, resulting in restriction of tongue movement and difficulty in speaking, eating, and swallowing. Tongue cancer can invade the tongue and palatine arch and tonsils backwards, and advanced tongue cancer can spread to the floor of the mouth and jaw bone, so that the whole tongue can be fixed.
86% of young adults with tongue squamous cell carcinoma are related to the patient's tooth deformity, and the affected part of the tongue has a history of frequent contact with the inner slanted teeth. Among the 65 26-39-year-old tongue cancer patients surveyed, 56 patients had teeth inclined or protruding to the tongue side, that is, there was abnormal contact between the teeth and the affected part of the tongue, and 37 of them were in contact with the affected part of the tongue. Before tongue cancer appeared, I felt that my teeth often collided and rubbed contact with the affected part of the known disease, forming chronic tongue lesions, and some of them were not cured for a long time.
Experts believe that the long-term contact and wear of teeth on the tongue can cause chronic lesions on the tongue; young men smoke and drink more, these complex harmful factors stimulate and damage the tongue lesions for a long time, which can make the tissues in the affected area of the tongue. The cells gradually undergo aberrations, which may eventually lead to cancer.
Therefore, medical experts confess to people that once they find that there are tooth bulges, tooth deformities, wisdom teeth that grow rapidly toward the end of the tongue, and abnormal arrangements, especially long-term tooth and tongue conflict, friction, or biting, it is necessary Arouse great attention, go to the hospital's dentistry department for examination as soon as possible, and carry out the necessary orthopedic treatment to prevent it from happening.
4. Periodontal disease causes heart disease
In addition, more and more evidence shows that there is an inevitable connection between periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease. Inflammation of the gums can lead to an increase in C-reactive protein, and high C-reactive protein is considered a pathogenic factor for heart disease.
New York University School of Dentistry, Department of Dental Caries and Comprehensive Care, Mark Wolfe, said that researchers have found that bacteria in dental plaque can block arteries. Originally thought it was just an accidental factor, now it is discovered that it is actually a risk factor for disease.
Bacteria in the oral cavity may circulate throughout the body through the bloodstream and cause diseases. This is why doctors recommend that patients who are considering non-acute surgery should first solve the oral problems that need to be dealt with.
The American Heart Association no longer recommends that patients suffering from mitral valve prolapse (the heart valve cannot close normally during ventricular systole) should take antibiotics regularly before the oral disease is cured. In the process of chewing food, oral bacteria may enter the human blood circulatory system at any time.
5. The dentist can check for AIDS
The American Heart Association, the American Medical Association, and the American Orthopaedic Association all urge patients who have undergone total joint replacement surgery to take an antibiotic one hour before each visit to the dentist to reduce the risk of postoperative infection.
Some dentists said that they also need to keep abreast of the latest status of patients taking medication. For example, anticoagulants can cause massive oral bleeding, and bisphosphonates, which are commonly used to treat osteoporosis, can cause osteonecrosis of the jaw. Before oral surgery, both types of drugs must be suspended.
Antihypertensive drugs, calcium channel blockers, and some anti-inflammatory drugs can cause severe ulcers in the gums. Therapeutic drugs such as antidepressants and chemotherapy can cause dry mouth and reduce the saliva secretion that can usually protect the teeth, which may cause large-scale tooth decay. In this case, fluoride can be added to reduce the risk of tooth decay due to dry mouth.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that dentists provide HIV testing because certain initial signs of HIV infection appear in the oral cavity, including fungal infections and oral lesions. The dentist only needs to wipe and sample the oral cavity with a cotton swab, and the HIV test result can be obtained within 20 minutes after submission.
6. Teeth and diabetes
Many diabetic patients' gums and teeth junctions look white and bright, easy to bleed, tooth roots are loose, and the mouth is full. It is estimated that about 6 million Americans have diabetes without knowing it. Experts say that gum problems and high blood sugar not only originate from the same lifestyle, but also aggravate each other's conditions. After gum infection and inflammation, diabetic patients will have more difficulty controlling their own blood sugar levels, and high blood sugar will aggravate tooth decay and gum problems, causing more inflammation.
7. Periodontal disease is an "invisible killer"
According to experts, a large number of empirical studies have confirmed that periodontitis can affect the functions of important organs such as the heart, lungs, and kidneys. For pregnant women, periodontal disease not only harms their own health, but may also lead to risks such as the birth of low-weight babies, and this probability is nearly 7 times higher. It is entirely possible to use "invisible killer" to describe the harm of periodontal disease.
8. Poor living habits are the chief culprit that causes adults to contract periodontal disease
Experts pointed out that smoking, alcoholism, mental stress, irregular work and rest, and incorrect oral care habits can all cause "sickness" to the upper body. But many people don't care about this, until the disease invades the periodontal fibers, causing inflammation, suppuration, loose teeth or even falling off. To this end, experts reminded that sufficient attention must be paid to the hazards of periodontal disease.
According to experts, the main factors that cause periodontal disease are dental plaque and calculus, which cannot be completely removed by gargle and hasty brushing alone, and must be removed by washing the teeth. Generally, the teeth are washed once a year to a year and a half; the brushing habits are not very good, and people who are prone to tartar are washed once every six months.
Many friends like to drink a variety of beverages. Among them, carbonated beverages are very harmful to teeth. Long-term and large amounts of carbonated beverages may cause large-scale erosion of teeth, especially for children. Drink less or no carbonated beverages, and rinse your mouth immediately after drinking are all necessary measures to prevent carbonated beverages from harming your teeth.
