Certain medical conditions can impact your teeth, gums, and oral health. Your general health affects your dental health.
- Pregnancy and diabetes can raise the risk of gum disease.
- Oral infections are more likely if you are receiving cancer treatment or a compromised immune system.
- Cognitive disorders can affect memory and the ability to carry out tasks like brushing teeth.
If you are pregnant or have a medical condition, remember to schedule regular appointments with your dentist.
