MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 5, 2012) - According to a study conducted by the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH), 93 percent of people with gum disease are at risk for diabetes. Additionally, results indicate that gum disease can heighten the risk of cancer and blood clots. Many people might not be aware of the correlation between poor oral hygiene and overall health, and visiting a dentist regularly is fundamental to help reduce the likelihood of the development of diseases. The doctors at New England Dental Group, a Marlborough cosmetic dentistry practice, take a unique approach to patient care by evaluating not only the oral health of each patient, but the dental connection to other conditions such as heart disease, gum disease and diabetes. The doctors say this approach is important because the evaluation of patients' total health and wellness through periodontal and dental care can help prevent these life-threatening diseases.
The dentists in Marlborough say some patients may not be aware of the impact of poor oral health because the symptoms may not be as noticeable; however, the development of bacteria in the mouth can lead to more serious health risks such as blood clots, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, or even heart attack. When bacteria from the mouth enters the body, the dentists say fatty plaques can collect on the arteries, which can ultimately block the blood flow to the brain and other areas of the body. In order to prevent future risks of this nature, the practice focuses on identifying early signs of these diseases through comprehensive diagnostic exams before the condition worsens. The dentists add that the total health approach includes reviewing patients' health history, which can provide a better understanding of how to help patients improve their oral hygiene.
The doctors at New England Dental group perform a host of cosmetic, restorative and general dentistry procedures such as dental implants, porcelain veneers, Invisalign® and root canal therapy. Furthermore, the team performs routine dental cleanings to help bridge the gap between oral and body health. The dentists say they continually strive for high standards of patient care, and dedicate time to creating individual treatment plans for every patient. Regardless of the dental procedure they choose, the doctors at New England Dental Group say they strive to give patients the smile they deserve.
