How do Heart Disease & Dental Care Relate

If you have missed your last dental cleaning and checkup, a recent study might encourage you to schedule that appointment right away.  Researchers have discovered a higher risk of heart disease in individuals who have hidden tooth infections.

Risk factors for heart disease are obesity, physical inactivity, smoking, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes.  Now resarchers are adding poor dental health to the list.

Now is the time to get back on track with your dental care.  Give us a call today, we will be happy to work with your schedule and get you in.
