A Healthy Body Requires A Healthy Mouth
Studies have shown links between periodontal (gum) disease, heart disease and other health conditions. Research suggests that gum disease may be a more serious risk factor for heart disease than hypertension, smoking, cholesterol, gender and ages. Learning how to identify gum disease and how to treat it is critical in maintaining a healthy mouth and a healthy body.
If you have any questions about how you can have a healthy, attractive smile like many of our other patients, please contact us today.
The bacteria found in diseased gums can come loose and move throughout the body. When this bacteria reaches arteries it can cause arterial plaque to build up and harden which in return adversely affect blood flow.
Dental plaque is the primary cause of gum disease. Bacteria found in plaque produce enzymes and toxins which injure the gums. Injured gums turn red, swell and bleed easily.
Daily brushing, flossing, etc., will keep "leftovers" to a minimum, but a professional cleaning will remove stains, plaque and calculus in the places that your toothbrush and dental floss have missed.
