A healthy body starts with a healthy mouth.

Hey smile fans! Your smile team is here to bring you the facts about what can happen if you neglect your dental health.

Since the condition of your mouth can reflect the condition of your body, chances are as your Oral Health caretakers, we may be the first to see signs of a health risk.

Dental visits should never replace the care of your general physician in any way. However, regular six-month dental exams are an important part of your overall healthcare.

Inflamed Gums Give Bacteria an Open Door

Many studies show now that neglecting your dental hygiene may be damaging to your overall health.  Chronic bad breath and gums that are bleeding, tender, swollen or recessed are all signs of an infection. If untreated, a bacterial infection in your gums can progress to attack the ligaments and bone surrounding your teeth.

Deeper pockets from between your teeth and gums, allowing more bacteria to grow. This stage, periodontitis, is the most advanced form of gum disease, and the most damaging to your dental health.

Help Keep Harmful Bacteria Out of Your Bloodstream

As the toxins from bacteria continue to inflame your gums and jawbone, easy passage into your bloodstream is created.

Vital organs, including your heart and lungs can be seriously damaged in the process. With regular dental cleanings and good oral hygiene, you can eliminate gum disease, improve your oral and overall health, and possibly live longer!
