Clues about diabetes, acid reflux, and other conditions may reveal themselves at your next visit to the dentist.

Key points:

  • White patches, a dry mouth, and an increase in cavities could be related to diabetes.
  • Enamel erosion of teeth is worsened by stomach acid reaching the mouth.
  • People with severe gum disease are more likely to have heart disease.

Regular check-ups with a dentist ensure that any issues can be identified and dealt with quickly.

“A person may not notice this, since it may occur slowly, but a dentist would notice on a periodic exam.”
