Preventative Dentistry

Preventative dentistry is one of the key factors to total systemic health and wellness. Current research indicates that poor oral health like gum disease has been definitively linked to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory illness, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis – among others.

Studies have shown that people with gum disease – otherwise known as PERIODONTAL DISEASE, are twice as likely to die as the result of a heart attack and three times as likely to suffer a stroke.

This condition affects nearly half of the adult population over the age of 30 and more than 70% of adults over the age of 65. It is the single most common and chronic inflammatory condition worldwide. This is largely in part due to the level of bacteria in our mouths and the vascularity of the oral cavity. Bacteria easily enter the bloodstream through our mouths and are carried throughout the body to vital organs – such as the heart.
