What your mouth could be telling you
from New Jersey On-Line
Dentists can look into your mouth and see evidence of up to 120 diseases and our teeth may reveal early warning signs of serious medical conditions from kidney disease to anemia to diabetes — before these conditions show up with symptoms elsewhere in your body. Bad breath that doesn't go away could be a sign of gum disease. White or red patches on your gums or tongue could be symptoms of oral cancer. Signs of osteoporosis can show up in your mouth before other areas of the body are affected. Bleeding gums, dry mouth, and bone loss can all be indicators of other serious health problems. In fact, there's often a reciprocal relationship.
