"I believe with all my heart heart that civilization has produced nothing finer than a man or woman who thinks and practices true tolerance. Some one has said that most of us don't think, we just occasionally rearrange our prejudices. And I suspect that even today, with all the progress we have made in liberal thought, the quality of true tolerance is as rare as the quality of mercy. That men of all creeds have fundamental common objectives is a fact one must learn by the process of education. How to work jointly towards these objectives must be learned by experience". - Frank Knox

Economic stress affecting teeth, causing gum disease

 

 

 

 

 

 


     New Delhi, Dec 11 (IANS) It may sound far fetched but stress due to economic recession is harming dental structure and causing gum diseases, doctors in the national capital said Thursday.

 

     Growing economic stress among people has a deep damaging impact on teeth and heart. Recent studies have found that financial stress is one of the major cause of increasing dental problems, said Mahesh Verma, principal of the Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences (MAIDS).

 

     Stress due to financial crisis gives rise to gum disease, which may even lead to more serious health problems," Verma said at the ongoing Dental Health Fair here.

 

     Group Captain Rajesh Madan, a dental surgeon with the Indian Air Force (IAF), said: Stress damages dental structures quickly and severely.

 

     The damage starts when chemical triggers block your immune function, and deplete your teeth supporting bones of calcium and other necessities in order to maintain blood mineral levels, Madan added.

 

     Economic stress may lead to people grinding more teeth and (thus) damages dental health. With the result that affected people require more extensive corrective procedures such as dental implants or gum grafting," Verma said.

 

     Moreover, recent studies have found that gum infection may contribute to the development of heart disease, increase the risk of stroke, increase the risk of premature births in women, and further compromise the health of people living with diabetes and respiratory disease, he warned.

 

     Suchin Bajaj, director of private Altius Healthcare, said the result of stress can be tooth infections leading to problems in the coronary arteries of the heart.

 

     He said stress emanating from economic slow down lead to mouth sores and gum disease, and encourages teeth and their support bones to decay.

 

     Nail biting and tooth grinding wear out protective enamel and supporting jaw tissues, which multiply the risk of infection, Bajaj added.

 

     A seven-day dental health fair is going on at the Maulana Azad Medical College in the capital.
