Your Heart and Gums

A high correlation has been identified in patients with periodontal disease . The bacteria and its toxins may travel within the blood stream and begin a low-grade inflammatory reaction causing plaque formation inside the arterial walls leading to atheromatous plaque and thrombus formation.

It is important to maintain an excellent oral hygiene and routine visits with your hygienist to help prevent increased plaque build up around your teeth and have healthier gums.
