The Connection Between Your Oral & Overall Health

Did you know that taking care of your oral health can affect your whole body? We’re sharing a video by the American Dental Association (ADA) that talks about the link between your oral and overall health. 

By practicing good oral hygiene and visiting us twice a year for regular checkups, you are keeping bacteria and plaque at bay. As a result, you are reducing your risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes since bacteria can get into your gums and affect your bloodstream.

Plus, by having a complete set of fully functioning teeth, you are able to eat healthier, crunchy foods too. So if you have missing, damaged, or diseased teeth, you’ll give your oral health an incredible boost by addressing these problem teeth.
