Why Do I Need to Share My Medical History with My Dentist?

Good afternoon,

Today we are sharing an informative article from "Know Your Teeth" entitled 'Why Do I Need to Share My Medical History with My Dentist?' A lot of people might wonder why your full medical history is important to your dentist. It's not uncommon for people to separate their oral health from the rest of their physical health but in truth they are connected and vital to each other!

"During your first dental visit, your dentist will ask for a thorough medical history, which typically is included on a patient registration. This section may include questions about lifestyle (such as smoking or involvement in high-risk sports) and family medical history. This history, combined with the results of your initial clinical examination, will help to assess your immediate dental-care needs and recommend the best treatment approach."

It is important to "mention everything about your health, even if you don't think it relates to your mouth. If you have had surgery or a major illness, be sure to include this information in the medical history of your patient information section.'

 'Many diseases can have significant effects on your mouth and teeth, and researchers continue to discover ways in which oral health is related to overall health. Diabetes, for instance, can increase the risk of periodontal (gum) disease." (KnowYourTeeth.com)
