We are very aware of the connection to periodontal health and cardiac health, as well as the connection between periodontal disease and diabetes. There is an inflammation process that puts you at high risk for heart attack and stroke if periodontal disease is left untreated. Periodontal disease may also lead to a pre-term, low birth weight baby.
One of the other risk factors is smoking. Smoking, along with numerous other health risks, increases your risk of tooth loss. We will do our best to educate you for any additional risk factors and how to improve your dental health.
