AsthmaticRecent studies have revealed that people with asthma are more likely to suffer from dental diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. Therefore, if you have asthma you should visit the dentist regularly.
Key takeaways:
– Asthma patients breathe through the mouth, causing severe dryness that facilitates bacteria.
– People with dry mouths lack enough saliva to wash away food particles and harmful bacteria from teeth.
– Asthma patients should brush and floss regularly to prevent dental diseases like periodontitis and gingivitis.
People with asthma should drink lots of water to prevent dehydration, practise proper oral habits, and see the dentist regularly.
