Diseases like broken teeth, sore gums, and tooth pain, as well as tooth decay, are usually thought to be minor. However, if these diseases keep happening, some people can get heart disease, cancer, and mental and mental diseases.

According to the medical journal Healthline, British experts examined the data of 40 people to discover the link between oral and mental diseases.

The majority of the people with minor dental or mouth diseases whose data the experts reviewed were over 55 years old.

Experts examined the level of brain and mental illness in all of the above people and discovered that those with dental or mouth diseases also had mental and mental diseases.

Such people were also diagnosed with diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s, and many problems and complications were discovered in their brains.

Researchers stated that prior to the above study, a similar study had revealed that minor mouth diseases are closely related to heart diseases, but now such diseases have been revealed to cause mental and mental diseases.

Experts said that the above study is preliminary and that more research is needed in this area. However, most experts linked oral health to overall health by saying that mouth diseases that last for a long time can lead to many serious diseases.

Dentists stated that while most people try to clean the worms in their teeth with toothpaste and brushes, there are some insects that do not come out with the toothbrush and paste and must be removed by a doctor.

Similarly, experts said that there are some dental and mouth problems that need formal treatment, so to avoid mouth diseases, dental doctors should go on a regular basis.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reported in November 2022 that 45% of the world’s population, , suffer from some form of oral disease.

According to the organization, common oral diseases include tooth decay, pain, swelling of the gums, and pain in the mouth, including tooth fall, while mouth cancer is at the top of the dangerous diseases list..
