Fishers Dentistry

Educating Fishers Dental Patients About Little-Known Risks Hi, I’m Dr. Dale Behner, DDS. Most every day, I can be found at my Fishers area dental office treating family dentistry patients with tooth and gum problems or helping patients prevent them. There are many common medical conditions that pose a risk to oral health.

1) Fishers diabetes patients with high blood glucose often have a higher risk of dental issues. If you have diabetes, let’s talk. My number is 317-842-2337.

2) A persistent dry mouth due to an inadequate amount of saliva can accelerate tooth decay, cause or contribute to gum disease, and trigger chronic bad breath. Many medications used by thousands of Fishers area folks, including those for high-blood pressure and depression, cause dry mouth. This side effect is not only unpleasant, it is dangerous. Anti-depressants (especially SSRI’s) and anti-psychotic drugs can also trigger tooth-grinding (bruxism).

3) Acid reflux in children and adults is associated with a host of dental problems such as decay and the need for periodontal treatment.

I help many Fishers cosmetic dentistry patients prevent problems associated with medical conditions that sometimes seem unrelated to dental health. Regular professional dental care is essential for oral health, and an important part of your overall physical health.
