Frisco Dentist Can Dentists Help Diagnose GERD

Can Your Dentist Can Help Diagnose GERD?

With the upcoming Memorial Day weekend on the horizon, we thought it timely to talk some more about how oral health & overall health are connected.

At a time when the barbecues go blazin’ sometimes a little over-indulgence can lead to heartburn.

If you find yourself – or someone you love – constantly reaching for the antacid tablets after chowing down, you may have an acid-reflux issue, or GERD.

Do you know what GERD is?

Did you know that your dentist can help diagnose GERD?

What Is GERD?

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which the stomach contents (food or liquid) leak backwards from the stomach into the esophagus (the tube from the mouth to the stomach).

This action can irritate the esophagus, causing heartburn and other symptoms your Frisco dentist can help diagnose and treat…

How Does Your Dentist Help Your GERD?

How can your trusted local dentist help recognize the warning signs and offer treatment associated with acid reflux disease?

Watch this video to learn more about the connection between GERD & your twice annual visits to our Frisco TX dentist office.

Frisco Dentist Treats Oral Health & Overall Health

Interesting…want some more evidence on how overall health is directly connected to oral health?

Check out this article to see how dental records can identify osteoporosis risk factors years before the condition actually develops.

What are some other overall health conditions that can also present risk factors or symptoms related to oral health?

  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Oral Cancer
  • Dementia
  • Sleep Apnea

If we are what we eat…and the leg bone is connected to the hip bone…doesn’t it make sense that the better we take care of our teeth and gums, the better our overall health will be as well?
