Dr. Tony Cigno, dentist in Milwaukee, shares new dental tips article outlining what your mouth says about your overall health.
Greenfield, WI — January 26, 2016— Wisconsin Dentist Tony Cigno recently published an article titled, “Is Your Mouth a Window to Your Health? Dental Tips from Milwaukee Dentist Dr. Tony Cigno.”
In the article, Dr. Cigno gives four specific clues to health that can be found in the mouth. As he says, “They say the eyes are the window to the soul. And that may be true. However, it might be just as accurate to say your dental health speaks volumes about your general health too. “
Dr. Cigno has been a Milwaukee Dentist for many years and as such, has become expert on identifying dental issues at their earliest stages and before they become major problems. Early identification and intervention enables him to save his customers unnecessary pain, suffering, and expense.
Furthermore, as Dr. Cigno explains in the article, new research shows this may also be beneficial to safeguarding one’s systemic health as well.
One of the symptoms of greater problems that can be seen in a patient’s mouth is the teeth becoming increasingly – or significantly more – sensitive. This can be a symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. In regards to this disease, Dr. Cigno states, “With GERD, acid from the stomach leaks back up through the esophagus, into the throat and subsequently, the mouth. Here, it erodes the enamel on the teeth over time. Most often, it will affect the tongue side of the teeth. “
Like all of the health and dental correlations discussed in the article, aside from just dental ramifications, GERD can negatively impact a person’s primary health. That’s why this dental “warning” is so critical. It allows a person to address the issue as soon as they notice the symptom and discuss it with their dentist, such as Milwaukee Dentist Dr. Tony Cigno, so that treatment can begin as quickly as possible.
