Heart Health

Did you know?  Having good dental hygiene can spare you health complications that gum disease and tooth decay may cause you down the road.

There is a strong connections between gum disease and general health issues.  Some studies show that respiratory infections can be caused by simply inhaling bacteria from your mouth, which could even cause pneumonia.  Some research supports an increased risk for stroke, heart disease and an increased risk of fatal heart attacks because of bacteria build-up in the mouth.

Good hygiene really comes down to obtaining good habits for brushing, flossing, and seeing your dentist for regular checkups.  Parents should closely monitor and assist in tooth care for their children.  Many of our life habits develop when we are children, so help your kids to feel the importance of brushing and flossing.

Simple habits can help you lead a more healthy life years down the road.
