Since February is American Heart Month, let’s talk about how your oral care affects your heart health! Today we’re sharing a video that shows you how your oral health and heart health are connected! Your mouth is filled with bacteria, and when that bacteria gets into your gums, it can travel into your bloodstream. As a result, it can often lead to health problems like gum disease. That’s why it’s so important to practice good oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day are a great start. However, it’s good to take it a step further. Make sure you schedule your cleanings and exams twice a year so we can help you stay on top of your oral health and your overall health. Call Brian C.
