A dental check-up and clean every 6 months is essential to ensure you maintain healthy teeth and gums. By having routine checks, this allows early detection of issues where treatment is often simpler and less invasive.
The secret to a healthy heart is healthy gums, scientists have proven that periodontal disease is closely linked to cardiovascular disease. Both periodontal and cardiovascular disease are inflammatory diseases, and inflammation is the common mechanism that connects them. The presence of gum inflammation increases inflammation throughout the body which in turn may significantly increase your chances of developing heart disease. If left untreated, chronic inflammation can lead to dysfunction of the infected tissue and therefore to more severe health conditions.
People who are at risk of developing periodontal disease should have their periodontal condition closely monitored and managed. Brushing twice daily and flossing daily in addition to regular dental check-ups is essential in the prevention of tooth decay and gum inflammation.
