Are u suffering from Diabetes or Hypertension or Cardiac problems and u have dental problems? Then its time to concentrate on ur oral health as well. Research says that these conditions and also a list of many other general health conditions can be worsened with poor oral hygiene. Our mouth, which is a reservoir of millions and trillions of bacteria, is a constant and unavoidable source of many general diseases of our body. Our oral bacteria constantly tries to enter the blood stream through our gum and other oral tissues and subsequently reach many target organs. This process is called technically as Septicemia. Septicemia may be a major cause of concern particularly in Cardiac and Diabetic patients with poor oral hygiene. So it becomes a part of the responsibility of the Dental professionals to educate and motivate the patients to maintain a good oral hygiene particularly in individuals suffering from chronic debilitating diseases.
