What Does Your Mouth Say about Your Health!


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/22/AR2009062201657.html

This is a great article talking about what a good dentist will see inside your mouth and how it correlates with your overall health

beef red gums: heart disease
bleeding gums: type 2 diabetes
acid damaged teeth: acid reflux
black spots on x-rays: osteoporosis
big tongue: sleep apnea
swollen gums often bleeding: pregnancy I remember bleeding more when pregnant its related to the high levels of oestrogen this also causes the glow!
thin upper teeth and enamel erosion: bulimia

So make sure you keep up with your annual exam its more than just your teeth!

Oh and a little reminder about the giveaway I will judge it on saturday



Rebecca, oh and my baby is so much better today LOL
