Des Plaines, IL (PressExposure) September 10, 2009 -- In the past, oral health has been associated only with the mouth. But new research by medical institutes has revealed that pain in gums and cavities can cause heart attacks and strokes. Periodontitis has been researched to be the cause of premature birth, low birth weight, pancreatic cancer, etc.
The American Dental Association (ADA) disagrees that the bodily problems are caused by dental ones. Bacterial endocarditis which is an infection in the lining of the heart or heart valves is a common risk associated with periodontal disease.
Chirag Patel, CEO of AmericanDiscountDental.com says, âGingivitis and Periodontitis are two major stages of gum disease. Gingivitis is an early stage while Periodontitis is the more serious and advanced stage and includes bone loss which is an irreversible change. Poor oral hygiene has been cited to be the most common cause of periodontitis.â
Gum diseases can be prevented by flossing daily and with regular check ups to the local dentist. But do you think you can afford that much for you and your family? How much money do you shell on it? Do you want to save on it?
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services lists 1,200 dental clinics in 50 US states. The Association of State Dental Directors also lists states' oral health clinics. One can call up to find out what dental services they offer and what dental plans they have, and whether you qualify to get them.
Patel adds, âDiscount dental plans are fast catching up the hype which started when they emerged in the arena of the dental world. One should be open minded to such plans and decide on what is best for them.â
