Asthma can affect more than your lungs. This respiratory condition can increase your chances of developing cavities, gum disease and oral sores, but with the right preventive measures, you can lower these risks and maintain a healthy mouth.
Asthma attacks can be induced by stressful situations. If the thought of going to the dentist makes you nervous, you can try these strategies to curb your anxiety.
Finally, always remember to bring your inhaler to your dental appointment in case of an asthma attack.
