A growing body of research indicates a link between oral health and total health. Did you know that gum disease has been linked to most of the major diseases of inflammation, including heart disease, atherosclerosis, stroke, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, and Alzheimer's? Or that treating your gum disease could stave off a stroke, a heart attack or having a low birth weight / preterm baby? Did you know that the mouth can give us clues as whether or not you suffer from potentially dangerous conditions such as heart disease, metabolic disease, allergies, cancer, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, or sleep apnea? Because of our level of education and awareness, our team is able to identify oral signs and symptoms of major systemic disease. With knowledge of the early signs of these diseases, our patients are able to detect and then begin to reverse this disease process early.
