Dentist Robert Korwin of Red Bank, New Jersey Warns That Poor Oral Health Can Lead to an Increased Risk of Breast Cancer and Other Diseases
RED BANK, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
Dr. Robert Korwin of Advanced Dentistry with a Gentle Touch, a dentist
in Red Bank, warns that poor oral health can lead to an increased
risk of disease in other parts of the body.
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, begins with gingivitis and
progresses quickly. If not treated promptly by a dentist, gum disease
and the resulting inflammation can lead to a long list of serious health
Researchers at the World Health Organization, the American Academy of
Periodontology, and the American Cancer society confirm the dangers of
gum disease. Health risks include breast cancer, prostate cancer,
diabetes, intestinal cancer, ad heart disease. Gum disease has also
been linked to premature and low-birth-weight babies.
"By developing good oral hygiene habits and making regular visits to
their dentists, most people can reduce the chances of developing gum
disease," explains Dr. Korwin. "There is a strong connection between
oral health and overall body health. The link between the mouth and the
body is called the oral systemic connection. Most people don't know this
and, unfortunately, many dentists don't take the time to explain this to
The reason that gum disease has such a significant impact on overall
health is that it is caused by bacteria in the mouth. It's that bacteria
that travels to other parts of the body through the lungs and blood
"We also understand that, due to fear and anxiety, many people avoid
going to their dentist," says Dr. Korwin. "That's why our practice
focuses on reducing fear and anxiety by creating a comfortable
environment. We also offer sedation and CalmistrySM, which
uses guided relaxation, visualization, and gentle affirmations to help
our patients enter a peaceful state of mind."
Dr. Korwin's practice includes cosmetics, orthodontics, emergency care,
