We have helped many patients achieve beautiful smiles.
A great smile can be an important asset at any age. To keep your smile
healthy and bright, make sure you take care of your teeth and gums at
home, and visit your dentist for routine checkups. When you go to your
dentist’s office for a cleaning, for dental implants, or because
you need a filling, there are certain things you should be sure to discuss.
You may need to fill out medical history forms, especially if you are
visiting a dentist for the first time. If you are returning to a dentist,
be sure to update your forms if there have been any changes in your health.

If you have had a heart attack, you should definitely let your dentist
know. This is especially important if you are on any anti-coagulant medications,
as these could lead to excessive bleeding if you are undergoing oral surgery.
People with high blood pressure should also alert their dentists, since
treatments for this condition can cause dry mouth or changes in your sense
of taste. Certain types of blood pressure medications may cause an overgrowth
of gum tissue, which can result in the need for surgery to remove it.
Gum disease and diabetes have a direct relationship, as gum disease is a
common occurrence in people who have diabetes. The presence of gum disease can also make it more difficult to control
your diabetes, so let your dentist know if you have it. Since the relationship
between gum disease and diabetes goes both ways, the good news is that
treating one can have a positive effect on the other. Ask your dentist
how you can get your gum disease under control to benefit your oral health
as well as your overall wellbeing.
