Tony Cigno, Wisconsin family dentist, shares potential major risks of poor dental health.
Greenfield, WI — June 27, 2016 — Wisconsin Dentist Tony Cigno recently published a new two part article sequence on dental health titled, “Dental Dangers: The Horror Movie Lurking In Your Mouth.”
In part one of the series, Dr. Cigno starts off by pointing out that regular dental care is not only important to the aesthetics of your teeth and mouth and dental health but also to your overall health.
For example, he asks, “Do you have a chronic degenerative disease? Been told it’s “all in your head”? That may be true! It might be time to get your mouth a really good, thorough, checkup.”
He then goes on to share the first two major dangers that can be found in your mouth that can harm dental health and general health. These are mercury in the form of dental amalgam and tooth abscess.
Both of these, he explains, can not only cause minor sickness but have been linked to major illnesses too. Mercury vapor release for example, has been causally associated to Alzheimer’s. Tooth abscess can cause brain abscesses, meningitis, and even sepsis.
