How Does Good Dental Health Impact Your Overall Health?
A healthy mouth helps keep the rest of your body healthy and in check. Most people don’t understand how interconnected the mouth is with the entire body. Studies have proven that inflammation in your mouth caused by periodontal disease can lead to an increased risk of heart disease. Poor oral health can also affect brain health. Bacteria from an infected tooth can enter the bloodstream causing sepsis.
When Should You Schedule an Appointment?
We recommend visiting a dentist at least once a year for an exam and oral cancer screening. Dental problems typically do not get better on their own, and they are easier to treat when caught at an early stage. Regular checkups ensure your mouth stays healthy, so you can keep on smiling!
