Caries often causes diseases of the ENT organs, as well as the digestive system and even oncology. In addition, a poorly shaped prosthesis or a chipped piece of tooth can cause injury to the gums of the tongue. In turn, a poorly placed seal can fall out in a dream and enter the respiratory tract, provoking asphyxia and even death. No less a threat is advanced caries, which contributes to the appearance of dangerous strains of bacteria in the mouth. They enter the throat with food and saliva, causing inflammation of the larynx, tonsils and sore throat. Many believe that they suffer from ARVI, and do not suspect that the problem was provoked by unhealthy teeth.
Dangerous bacteria can also lead to gastrointestinal diseases. With food, they penetrate the stomach and intestines, causing inflammation, which threatens an ulcer. In some cases, being absorbed from the digestive system into the bloodstream, dental infections threaten pathologies in the cardiovascular system.
Doctors recommend carefully monitoring the health of your teeth, undergoing regular preventive examinations, and at the first problems, immediately contact dentists.
