In addition to keeping your pearly whites nice and shiny, there’s growing evidence of a connection between a healthy mouth and your overall health. Chronic inflammation from gum disease has been associated with cardiovascular problems such as heart disease, blockages of blood vessels, and strokes. Diabetes also has a strong association with periodontal disease. ♀️
This is why you should visit your dentist at least twice a year. Going to your dentist can help prevent other complications that may occur later in your life.
It’s never too late to develop healthier oral hygiene habits! #thepdxdentist
