Can Poor Oral Health Increase Allergies?


Posted on 4/20/2019 by Century Dental LLC
Can Poor Oral Health Increase Allergies?This seems like a crazy question. Allergies don't have anything to do with oral health, right? Well, not exactly. In fact, if you suffer from poor oral health, you can suffer from allergies?

Also, if you are an allergy sufferer, you need to make sure you are taking good care of your teeth, How can this be? Keep reading, and we'll tell you how you can make sure your oral health isn't contributing to your allergies.

Poor Oral Health and Allergies


If you experience bleeding gums, swollen gums and irritated gums, even if you brush regularly, you may want to look at how your diet and oral health may be contributing to your allergies. You may want to first look at the amount of vitamin D you are getting in your diet. Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins for your oral health. It promotes strong teeth and helps keep your tooth enamel healthy. If you are suffering from an increase in allergies, you may want to look at your vitamin D intake.

Some people with food allergies, especially to milk products, may be avoiding foods that contain vitamin D. You need to make sure that you are getting vitamin D into your body, either through other foods, or through supplements.

Many medical researchers have noted the link between poor oral health and allergies. They believe one of the causes of an increase in allergies is due to inflammation in your gums, which leads to an inflammatory response in the body. Vitamin D may actually cut down on the inflammation, and work to reduce the body's inflammatory response. This will not only make your gums and teeth healthier, but should reduce your allergic response.

Allergy Medicines Are Also a Cause for Attention


If you have allergies, you may also want to make sure that your allergy medicine is not contributing to your poor oral health. Be sure your mouth is not overly dry. If you regularly breathe through your mouth, or you take allergy medication, you need to be sure you are drinking plenty of water to keep your mouth hydrated. That way, bacteria are less likely to take up residence in your mouth.

Welcome to Century Dental, where we make your beautiful smile our business! Dr. Densley and Dr. Call have teamed up to create the driving force in the dental industry of the Pacific Northwest. We have put together a team of highly skilled, professional staff.

Located in Hillsboro, our office is easily accessible as it is right off of Oregon Route 8. We have gone to great lengths to make sure our office is both state-of-the-art and also comfortable and inviting.

Services Offered


Preventive Dentistry

We are passionate about preventing problems before they start. We do so by educating our patients about what positive dental habits they can be forming and having our patients visit us twice a year for exams and cleanings.

Restorative Dentistry

We understand that often, due to circumstances outside of your control, your mouth may need restorative actions taken. That’s why we offer a bevy of restorative procedures to bring your smile back to it’s original luster.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Frequently we hear that the procedures that make the biggest difference in our patient’s smiles are cosmetic in nature. Whitening, veneers and Invisalign® are just a few of the cosmetic procedure we offer!

IV Sedation

For those patients that need more than just oral sedation we offer what is often called “sleep sedation”. If anxiety is an issue or if the procedure calls for it we can easily place you under full anesthesia to ensure that you rest peacefully through the whole thing.

Dental Implants

If you have lost a tooth or are looking at tooth removal as an option, dental implants are the most highly recommended form of replacement for teeth. Dental implants involve inserting a titanium post into your jaw which will fuse with your bone structure. The post will be topped with a crown made specifically to fit your bite. The result is a form of tooth replacement that looks and acts exactly as your real tooth would. It even prevents bone loss, which is a common side effect of tooth loss.

Dental Technology


We are happy to use a great variety of cutting edge technology in our practice. Digital X-rays are one of our staples in dental tech. Standard X-rays can take time to view and process but with the advent of digital X-rays we can view the inner workings of your mouth almost instantly. We are also able to take higher quality X-rays that allow us to detect things like tooth decay within the tooth, cysts, tumors, and impacted teeth. Further, the radiation you receive from a digital X-ray device is about 1/5th that of a standard X-ray.

We also offer intraoral cameras and ultrasonic scalers. The intraoral cameras aid us in detecting any issues within your mouth that may need further dental attention. Ultrasonic scalers are by far the most effective method for removing built up plaque and tartar that has accumulated on teeth.
