Irritable people are prone to periodontal disease
According to Lu Shengbo, an associate professor at the School of Dentistry at the University of Texas at Baylor, Texas, people who claim that they have never had teeth and who are impatient are at high risk of periodontal disease.
The basic signs of periodontal disease include bleeding during brushing, bad breath, atrophy of the teeth, shaking of the teeth, swelling of the teeth, feeling of the teeth becoming longer, and sensitivity and soreness when eating hot food.
Based on clinical experience, Dr. Lu pointed out that there are two types of people who are at high risk of periodontal disease. The first type is that people with excellent dental conditions have never hurt their teeth and rarely find a dentist.
Human saliva can be divided into acidic and alkaline. People with acidic saliva are easy to form acid erosion and decalcification on the surface of the teeth, and it is easy to break down the teeth, which will cause pain.People with alkaline conditions are not prone to acid erosion and fractured teeth, but because of the calcium ion impurities in alkaline saliva, it is easy to calcify to form calculus.
Dental calculus is one of the main causes of periodontal disease.
The second category is impatient.
Because of the urgency, the brushing time is always rushed, and the teeth cannot be brushed.
Anxious people brush too quickly and forcefully, which can easily cause atrophy of the stressed part of the teeth, and the tooth root will be exposed after atrophy.
Lu Shengbo said that periodontal disease is also related to heart disease.
According to statistics, patients with periodontal disease are twice as likely to have fatal heart disease, and the stroke machine is three times more common.
According to statistics, three-quarters of people over the age of 35 will develop periodontal disease.
Dr. Lu said that because periodontal disease rarely causes pain, and Chinese people generally do not check their teeth every six months like Americans, many patients with periodontal disease often go to the dentist when the problem is serious.
