|Dental Problems Linked To Breast Cancer Health Articles | August 25 , 2011
New evidence shows that dental diseases are associated with yet another cancer. In addition to lung, kidney, pancreatic and white blood cell cancer, periodontal disease is now linked to breast cancer.
New data concerning women聮s health has linked periodontal disease to breast cancer. This came from a recent study in October 2010 at Huddinge , Sweden by the Department of Dental Medicine, Division of Periodontology, Karolinska Institutet.
Over 3000 women between the ages of 30-40 years were part of a 16 year randomized study. 聯Of the subjects with periodontal disease and any missing molars in the mandible 5.5% had breast cancer in comparison to 0.5% of the subjects who had periodontal disease but no missing molars,聰 the study reported. Missing molars are a sign of long term periodontal issues. (Read more details on the study at )
One explanation is that the bacteria , in periodontal disease, infects the entire blood supply of these advanced periodontal patients. This infection then sets off viral infections, referred to as 聯co-infections聰. These other infections cause the body to use all its immune response to fight the co-infections, leaving a suppressed immune system to fight off the cancer - in other words , too weak to fight anymore.
This information will not be a surprise for those in the medical field who have long known that periodontal disease affects the whole body. Other studies have shown that the bacteria found in periodontal disease are also linked to heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia, stroke , prostate disease, low birth weights in infants and indeed other cancers (pancreatic, kidney, lung and white blood cell).
It is important that everyone take care of their oral health and more so for those that are prone to any of the systemic diseases or have a family history of cancer. Diligent twice-daily cleanings should be a normal part of a person聮s health care. The Dental Air Force offers an effective way to combine tooth brushing and flossing that removes 60% more bacteria in between teeth and around the gums than an electric tooth brush. Regular six month professional visits to the dentist are also important. And if the patient has periodontal disease , those visits should increase to every three months for periodontal treatment.
Six signs that can alert one to periodontal disease are:
脧聽 聽Tender or bleeding gums (they should not bleed when you brush your teeth)
脧聽 聽Bad breath that won't go away
脧聽 聽Red or swollen gums
脧 聽 Painful chewing
脧聽 聽Sensitive teeth
脧聽 聽Loose teeth
Unfortunately periodontal disease does not show symptoms until it is advanced and it is irreversible. However, you and your dentist can halt its progress. That is why it is so important to visit the dentist and take meticulous care in cleaning your teeth daily.
These learning disabilities result as processing and developmental delays. These neurological delays do result into learning deficiencies but the child possessing such can be really imaginative and creative in their thought process but will definitely encounter issues when it comes to reading, writing and calculating.

There definitely is a path that directs towards solution and it is that play and learn techniques can be adopted by the parents where the child learns to fall in love with studies rather than considering it to be a toll on his back also being patient with the speed of learning of the child can help in so many ways. Setting reasonable expectations where the child is not burdened with irrational hopes is a must, also seeking special educational needs where there is helped reached in learning smoother and also quicker should be considered by parents.
Autism also resulting as a developmental disorder could be the reason for learning disabilities. Autism spectrum disorder is a result as being socially impaired and deficit where symptoms of the child mainly include avoiding eye contact , constant self 鈥搒timulation , speech deficit , restricted bodily movements , non -adjustable and also the sense of being intolerant towards affection and warmth .
Ways in which parents can participate in the betterment of the child鈥檚 health would be making sure that there is less involvement of physical touch because even warm hugs could be threatening for the child. Also the need to seek medications from a professional should be taken into account by parents because when the case is severe the child maybe in need of so. Autistic children although being delayed in terms of development still cannot be deprived from education; every school does provide special educational needs to such children where specialized home .
