Your oral health is important to your overall health, as shown in many recent studies.
Heart disease and diabetes are complicated by periodontal infection. Oral bacteria will travel through the blood stream and can settle in the heart and damage the heart valves. Poor oral conditions add stress to the immune system, making it harder for a diabetic or immune compromised patient to fight an illness or heal quickly. Periodontal disease has been shown to lead to low birth weight babies and even premature births. A tooth infection can even spread to the brain.
Regular dental check-ups are essential to your overall health. Problems are best dealt with when they are still small. Early treatment saves stress on the body and can possibly add years to your life, plus save you time, money, and discomfort.
