Simply put – yes there is. Actually, periodontal (gum) disease has been linked to numerous chronic and systemic illnesses, including diabetes, Alzheimer’s, pre-term childbirth, and yes, heart disease. It’s important to understand that, in the early stages called gingivitis, gum disease is difficult to detect, but it’s always best to receive treatment at this point when your periodontal disease is most treatable. As gum disease advances to the periodontitis stage, it becomes more difficult to treat, and can lead to serious health complications. How can you make sure to keep your gums healthy? It’s simple. Find a San Marcos dentist you trust and feel comfortable with, and make sure you visit them at least twice a year for dental checkups and teeth cleanings. In this post, we’ll talk a little more about the link between gum disease and heart health and tell you more about how visiting a San Marcos dentist regularly can help you avoid oral and whole body health concerns. February is heart health month, and your San Marcos dentist wants to help you keep your smile and heart healthy this month – and the rest of the year.
