People with asthma have a higher risk of developing gum disease. Gum disease is a bacterial infection of the gums that can result in tooth loss if untreated.
Therefore, people with asthma need to be more vigilant about their dental health to prevent gum disease from developing. They also must be aware of early signs like bleeding gums after brushing.
– Brush teeth or drink water after using an inhaler to get rid of chemicals
– Cut back on starches and sugary foods like cakes and cookies
– Drink plenty of water to remain hydrated
“Make sure you visit your dentist regularly so that any signs of gum disease or periodontal disease can be quickly detected and treated.”
