Will Asthma Sufferers Experience Oral Health Issues?

Scientists have found that those who have been diagnosed with asthma are more likely to suffer from a serious form of gums disease called periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can cause you to lose your teeth if it is not treated by a dentist.

Key takeaways:

– The use of an inhaler can damage teeth and gums over time.

– Try to breathe through your nose, as breathing through your mouth will cause tooth-protecting saliva to evaporate.

– Brush your teeth (when possible) after using an inhaler to remove chemicals from your mouth.

”Gum disease is the most common reason for tooth loss, and it’s an insidious disease because the early symptoms are easily overlooked.”
