How Does a Thyroid Condition Affect Oral Health

A thyroid condition may cause the thyroid gland to begin overproducing (or underproducing) hormone. Overproduction of thyroid hormone is referred to as “hyperthyroidism” while underproduction is known as “hypothyroidism”. In either case, the abnormal amount of thyroid hormone has a profound affect on the body. It is a negative affect, and individuals with a thyroid condition may have difficulty maintaining oral health. A thyroid condition truly affects the entire body, and individuals with hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism may be more susceptible to the following: gum disease, dry mouth, cavities, dental caries, and even a distorted sense of taste. The best way to prevent these problems is to take proactive steps towards maintaining healthy thyroid function. Visit this article on the Miami Dentist Blog to learn more about thyroid conditions, oral health, and what you can do to prevent serious illness.
