How High Blood Pressure affects Dental Health

High blood pressure can cause multiple issues when it comes to your dental health. Certain medications that are used to control high blood pressure, reduce your salivary flow which can often cause dry mouth. In turn dry mouth makes your teeth more susceptible to decay and gum disease because there is less saliva to protect your teeth. High blood pressure also causes your gums to bleed more if you have gum disease.

Periodontal bacteria cause damage to the gums and triggers inflammatory responses that can impact the development of systemic diseases including" high blood pressure. To help prevent this, brush and floss daily and visit your dentist regularly.

 If your blood pressure is too high, it will prevent your dentist from completing certain dental procedures.  Dr. Michael Wing and his team at Birkdale Dental in Huntersville are ready to take care of your dental as well as your overall health. Call us for an appointment today (704) 997-8280.
