Oral Health and Heart Health
Your oral health can affect your heart. Researchers are finding a link between gum disease and compromised cardiovascular health. The latest information we have is that the bacteria involved in gum disease can travel through your body, potentially to your arteries. If the bacteria were to enter the arteries of your heart it would cause plaque to build up, blood flow would be restricted, and the risk for a heart attack greatly increases. Arterial plaque can also become mobile and travel to other parts of the body. If a blockage were to occur in the brain it could cause a stroke. The health of our gums can cause multiple other problems. It is best to see your dentist for routine visits to catch any potential issues in the earliest stages possible. This helps keep you at optimal oral health and it also helps prevent other health-related issues in the future.
