Dr. Tony Cigno, dentist in Milwaukee, shares 8 new dental tips with systemic health signals that can be found in dental health.
Greenfield, WI — February 6, 2017 — Wisconsin Dentist Tony Cigno recently published an article titled, “More Random Health Warning Signs Found in Your Mouth – Milwaukee Family Dental Tips.”
This new article picks up where his last article in the Milwaukee Dental Tips series left off and gives eight new health warning signs the mouth can give regarding health. These include symptoms like sharp tooth pain, tooth color changes, and sores around the mouth.
Another specific sign Dr. Cigno shares is experiencing a weird taste in the mouth. As he says, “Feel like you are tasting metal? This can sometimes be due to medicines you are taking, or it may be a sign of a bigger problem like gum disease If you are having other signs of gum disease like bleeding or inflamed gums, then a trip to the dentist to figure this out is definitely in order.”
However, he adds, “Alternatively, a metallic taste in the mouth can also be due to a zinc deficiency—something common in vegetarians.”
Likewise, slit-like cuts on the inner corners of the lips are not just irritating, but can also be indicative of other more significant problems such as a fungal infection, bacterial infection, or vitamin deficiency. Dr. Cigno explains, “Most people assume these inner corner cuts are simply due to chapped or dry lips. Yet, that’s not always the case. While they may start for these reasons, if they begin to crust and bleed, they may also be associated with a vitamin deficiency and/or a bacteria or fungal infection that needs treatment.”
The other dental / health connection signs and symptoms he discusses are tongue strangeness, dry mouth, and chronic bad breath.
