Heart Healthy News

Man Drawing a Heart ChartDo you have sore, bleeding gums? Are you worried about your heart’s health, and how much time may still be available to enjoy your life and family? A visit to our office just might help solve all these worries simultaneously!

Fighting periodontal (gum) disease through outstanding daily hygiene and regular dental appointments is a three-for-the-price-of-one proposition. Protect your gums! Protect your teeth! And protect your heart in the bargain!

Recent research has shown that the levels of two inflammatory proteins known to raise the risk of heart disease can be substantially reduced by regularly treating inflamed gums. Furthermore, individuals with higher blood levels of certain disease-causing bacteria in the mouth were more likely to have high levels of plaque (atherosclerosis) in the carotid artery in the neck, which can lead to stroke.

So you see, making sure to stay up on those routine dental hygiene appointments is good for more than just your mouth!
