Recent studies at several universities by leading dentists have explored the connection between oral hygiene and glaucoma. Though this investigation is still in its early stages, preliminary evidence seems to suggest that the growth of excess bacteria inside the mouth might be a catalyst for the development of a particular type of glaucoma known as open-angle glaucoma.

What Is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a condition that is usually the result of fluid build up in the front of the eye. Open-angle glaucoma is the most extensive form of glaucoma in North America. Open-angle glaucoma results in a fluid buildup that in turn increases the pressure in your eye, which can then lead to damage to the optic nerve in the eye.

Can Poor Dental Health Cause Glaucoma?

According to Dr. Louis Pasquale, MD, from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary at Harvard Medical School in Boston, the link between dental hygiene and glaucoma could result from infection and inflammation at the base of your tooth which releases inflammatory agents that extend to the eye and potentially lead to glaucoma.

A recent publication in the ‘Journal of Glaucoma’ states that “the number of teeth ( which is an oral health indicator) and alterations in the amounts of oral bacteria might bear a positive correlation to glaucoma pathology.”

While the results are still preliminary, if confirmed by subsequent studies, it could indicate that maintaining good oral health has the potential to reduce the occurrence of open-angle glaucoma.

Dental Health and Eye Conditions

It is important to note here that an eye condition that has already been linked to maintaining good oral health is ‘Cataract.’ Toxic elements from mercury fillings have been found to increase the risk of cataracts, retinitis pigmentosa, iritis, color-vision issues, and other eye conditions.

Luckily, cataracts from mercury toxins can easily be prevented and treated with over-the-counter antioxidant eye drops, available for purchase online or across the counter at many drug stores.

Can a Tooth Infection Lead To Eye Infection?

When left untreated, an infected tooth can cause pain and lead to infection in other areas of your body, including your eyes. If your infected tooth is at the upper part of your mouth, the swelling can progress upwards and, in some cases, cause your eye to swell shut.

This spread of infection can potentially lead to a severe condition called cavernous sinus thrombosis, a critical and life-threatening sinus cavity infection, that requires immediate attention along with antibiotic treatment.

Does Tooth Extraction Effect Eyesight?

Many people believe that tooth extraction, or having a tooth pulled out can affect eyesight; however, this may not be the case. There is as yet no conclusive evidence available that indicates tooth extraction negatively affects vision.

Dental Health for People With Glaucoma

At this time, there are no specific dental care guidelines for people suffering glaucoma. Unless there are conclusive findings that confirm a likely connection between dental health and glaucoma, patients suffering from glaucoma must continue to maintain the same dental health regimen as everyone else.

Afterall good oral hygiene isn’t just important for your eyes; it’s essential to your overall well-being. Remember to visit your dentist regularly.

Have you been brushing your teeth the wrong way?

Over the course of your lifetime, you’ve probably brushed your teeth thousands of times, but have you been doing it the wrong way all this time? Brushing is something our dentists urge us to do twice a day, every day, but what is the right technique, and why is it time to stop rinsing?

When you clean your teeth, what method do you employ? Do you brush as hard as you can for a while and then spit your toothpaste out and rinse your mouth? If so, stop! Dentists are keen to encourage gentle brushing, and put a stop to rinsing. If you brush hard, you may think that you’re doing a more thorough job. In reality, you may actually be doing more harm than good. This is because brushing vigorously can damage your enamel.

Rinsing has probably been part of your oral care regime for as long as you can remember. There’s nothing dangerous about rinsing, but you may be missing out on the benefits of some ingredients found in your toothpaste. When you rinse immediately after brushing, this rids the mouth of important minerals like fluoride and calcium and ingredients such as Novamin, which are designed to strengthen the enamel and protect your teeth from acid erosion and sensitivity. Rather than rinsing your mouth after brushing, brush, spit, and then you’re done.

Cambridge-based hospital dentist. Dr Thomas O’Connor explained that many patients are unwittingly missing out on the benefits of all the fancy sounding minerals you see listed on the tube of toothpaste because they’re rinsing straight after brushing. It takes time for these minerals to be absorbed, so leaving some of the toothpaste behind is a great way to improve your brushing regime.

Flossing your teeth is an essential part of preventing gum disease and cavities. Flossing removes plaque (plaque is the main cause of gym disease) and bacteria that you cannot reach with your toothbrush. When you do not floss you are missing more than one third of your tooth’s surface. What is plaque? It is an invisible bacterial film that develops on your teeth every day. Plaque hardens within 24-36 hours turning into tartar (also called calculus). Tartar can only be removed with a professional cleaning. Floss at least once a day and the plaque won’t have a chance to harden. Getting into the habit of flossing is easy if you do it while watching television or while listening to music. Take a look at these diagrams and learn the proper way to successfully floss.

How To Floss Your Teeth

Step 1
Take a length of floss equal to the distance from your hand to your shoulder.

Wrap it around your index and middle fingers, leaving about two inches between your hands.

Step 2
Slide the floss between your teeth and wrap it into a “C” shape around the base of the tooth and gently under the gum line. Wipe the tooth from base to tip two or three times.

Step 3
Be sure to floss both sides of every tooth. Don’t forget the backs of your last molars. Go to a new section of the floss as it wears and picks up particles.

Step 4
Brush your teeth after you floss – it is a more effective method of preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

**floss can sometimes shred if it gets snagged on an old filling or jagged tooth. Try using a different type of floss there are many different times available at your local drug store.

** You may notice bleeding from your gums when you first start flossing, this should stop after a few days. If the bleeding does not stop contact your dentist.
