Poor Oral Hygiene and Possible Link to Heart Disease

Poor Oral Hygiene and Possible Link to Heart DiseaseThere have always been countless reasons for individuals to keep up with their oral hygiene habits as well as schedule regular trips to our dentist in Los Angeles, CA at least once every six months.   From maintaining a bright and straight smile to keeping one’s gums as healthy as possible, these quick and painless trips are one of the best habits that any patient can ever get in.  There is now one more reason, however, in which some individuals may find that professional dental treatments are important to their heart health.

Studies that have recently been published in the Journal of Periodontology have shown startling links between the health of one’s teeth and gums and the likelihood of a patient being diagnosed with heart disease as well.  While further research is necessary to discover the exact connections between all of these conditions, it is essential to receive regular dental checkups for a number of reasons.

During each appointment that you have at our office, we will strive to make your checkup as quick and enjoyable as possible.  These begin with a thorough inspection of the teeth and gums so that we can detect any abnormalities that may be the result of gum disease, oral cancer, tooth decay, or even malocclusion.  We also offer each of our patients professional dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar that may be producing plaque and bacteria.

If you would like to improve your dental health and steer clear of these common ailments, give our office a call today.
