How can you do that? Most people don’t even think about a connection between your heart and your teeth!! We know that you love your family and want the very best for them. But you must first take care of yourself! It’s actually one of the easiest and inexpensive things you can do to get ahead of the health game……brush your teeth…….at least twice a day! We know, we know, you have heard this your whole life! Well, it’s true! So just do it…..no matter how busy your life is…..stop and brush your teeth. If you can add flossing to that, you’re even more ahead of the game.
As your oral surgical specialists, we encourage you to also get routine dental check-ups and dental cleanings. Your family dentist is there to help you stay healthy!
It’s springtime, so get outside and exercise with your family too! Exercise always does the body good. We want to see you and your family flourish in life. Avoid gum disease (periodontitis), and bacterial infections that enter the bloodstream and can cause tooth loss, coronary artery disease, and strokes. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease kills 150,000 people in the U.S. younger than 65 a year. So, let’s join together as a society and reverse these numbers one toothbrush stroke at a time!
