New Year, New You

Make it a priority this year to have healthier teeth and gums. About 3 out of 4 Americans suffer from some form of gum disease. Gum disease, which includes periodontal disease and gingivitis, has been linked to many health conditions including cardiovascular disease. Inflammation is a major risk factor for heart disease and having periodontal disease could increase inflammation levels throughout your body. There are many ways to prevent gum disease including visiting your dental hygienist on a regular basis,  brushing 2-3 times a day and flossing daily. A new year is the perfect opportunity to set new resolutions for maintaining your oral health. Feel free to call us to schedule an appointment with one of our hygienists.
