We all know that taking care of our teeth is important, but did you know that your oral health can significantly affect your long-term heart health?
If you suffer from gum disease at a moderate or advanced stage, you are at greater risk for heart disease than a patient with healthy gums. This is due to the spread of bacteria from your mouth to other parts of your body through your bloodstream. These bacteria can cause inflammation which leads to a varying range of cardiovascular conditions.
Warning Signs of Gum Disease:
There is good news, though. We can help you prevent and treat gum disease to help prevent long term issues.
In addition to regular dental visits and cleanings, we recommend brushing with a soft bristled brush twice daily and flossing between your teeth daily. Even then, however, there are other factors that can affect your oral health. That’s why Dr. James Cooper, Dr. Jordan Cooper, Dr. Rachel Baker and the rest of our dental team are here.
If you are experiencing any of these warning signs, please contact our office to discuss treatment options so we can help you get back on track to the best health possible.
Oral health is a much bigger concern than simply ensuring the longevity of your teeth. Your oral health is important for your entire system to function the way it is intended. We at Cooper Family Dentistry care about your overall health and want to do our part to help you maintain the best possible well-being by helping you take care of your teeth and gums.
