Did you know that dental health and heart disease are related? Dental health and heart disease are intricately linked, and the cost for avoiding advanced periodontal disease or even something as mild as gingivitis may very well prove to be the cause of serious medical problems in the future.
Be good to your heart beginning with good oral health. The foundation of good oral health begins with a checkup and cleaning. Are you due for a checkup? Has it been awhile since you’ve been, and do you keep putting it off? Give yourself a valentine’s gift by scheduling that appointment. Your heart and your valentine will thank you.
February is also Children’s Dental Health Month. This was created to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers and many others. If we can start our children early learning the benefits of proper brushing, flossing and having their teeth cleaned, we are establishing the foundation for their future health. In this advanced digital age, there are even fun free apps you can get on your phone or tablet to encourage brushing and make it fun.
Stay warm and healthy this February.
