Dentists can diagnose many different things just by examining your mouth. One thing they can help diagnose is leukemia. Leukemia is a bone marrow cancer that affects your blood cells. There are signs and symptoms that lead to the diagnoses of this disease. If gums are very intensely red and inflamed this could be a sign. Sources also say that the gums become almost spongy as well. Although these signs could lead to a diagnoses of leukemia, it certainly does not always mean that you have leukemia if you have these symptoms. If you are struggling with these symptoms, it is a good idea to make an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible as you don't know what these symptoms could mean.

You end up loosing all your baby teeth anyways right? So why is it so important to keep them healthy? Baby teeth are important for many reasons. The biggest reason to have children take care of their baby teeth is because it teaches them good oral hygiene habits at a young age. Once these habits are instilled into them, they will continue with the habit hopefully forever. Another reason why baby teeth are so important is because they make room for your permanent teeth to come in. If it weren't for your baby teeth, your permanent teeth would come in incorrectly and misaligned causing serious dental issues. And lastly, think about how hard it would be to speak properly without any teeth. At a young age, children are learning to speak and pronounce words so it would be very hard for them to learn correctly if they were missing their needed baby teeth. It is very important to keep baby teeth healthy because as you can see, they are very important to young children. Baby teeth should not be lost until they are ready to come out due to a permanent tooth coming in.

Studies and research show that stress can actually take a toll on the health of your mouth. It is very easy to forget or simply ignore your oral hygiene when you are under a lot of pressure or stressed out about something. This can lead to unhealthy oral hygiene and could lead to a bad habit of neglecting the care your teeth need. Other studies show that stress can actually damage your gums due to the increased release of cortisol, which is released when you are stressed. If you are under a lot of stress, take a minute to recall if you are remembering to care of your teeth.
