2013-06-10 11:35

Can Kidney Disease Affect Your TeethAs your kidney function is impaired,various kinds of wastes will accumulate in body.Kidney disease can affect your teeth like tooth decay and gum disease. If left untreated,these teeth problems may lead to infection and more serious conditions.

It is reported that the patients with kidney disease and those on Dialysis are more likely to have teeth problems and other oral health problems than the general population.

As the kidneys fail to work, buildup of bacteria may occur in the mouth. The teeth problem is typically caused by high concentration of urea in the saliva&its subsequent breakdown to ammonia.Because the patients with kidney disease have weakened immune systems,they are more susceptible to infections.The inflammation caused by periodontal disease is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

The diseased kidneys fail to balance the levels of calcium and phosphorus in blood.Lower level of calcium in blood can contribute to the loss of calcium from the bones thus resulting in bone weakness.Weak bones can cause teeth to become loose and potentially fall out. Therefore, it is important to keep the levels of calcium and phosphorus in blood within the goal range.

To reduce the incidence of teeth problem, the patients should should keep good dental hygiene.

*Brush your teeth twice a day to remove excess plaque as well as any acids that can harm your teeth enamel.

*Flossing a once a day to clean the food debris between the teeth.

*Visiting the dentist twice a year. Professional teeth cleaning can help you teeth keep healthy.

The above tips can help reduce the risk of teeth problem in kidney disease. However, the buildup of wastes is the underlying cause. Therefore, to prevent the problem completely, the fundamental treatment goal is to treat kidney disease completely.
