The Importance of Your Dental Health

Professional Lane Dental wants you to learn that the health of your teeth and gums has a direct impact on your overall health.

Cavities left untreated can cause infection and abscesses.
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint – the joint near your ear) dysfunction can cause headaches, neck and jaw pain, back and shoulder pain and more.
Periodontal disease (Gum disease) can cause tooth loss, bone loss and infection.

Recent studies have proven a more serious link between your oral health and your total health.

It’s been proven that the bacteria associated with gum disease can cause an increase risk in:

  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Certain cancers, including pancreatic cancer
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Complications controlling blood sugar levels in diabetes
  • Low birth weight babies
  • Premature birth

Knowing this information, it’s more important than ever to take good care of your teeth and gums!
