February is National Heart Month! Practicing good oral hygiene not only protects your smile but it also protects your heart.
We’re sharing a video that talks about this direct connection. When bacteria gets into your gums, and causes an infection, this can cause problems like gum disease. People who experience gum disease have an increased risk for heart disease and stroke.
That’s why it’s so important to take good care of your oral health! By brushing twice a day and flossing at least once, you are already ahead of the game when it comes to protecting your smile. However, make sure you are visiting the dentist at least twice a year for cleaning and exams. We’ll be able to spot gum disease and other oral health concerns and treat them before they become big problems.
