Preventative Dentistry Keeps Diabetics Out of ER
Researchers reported these findings in the January issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association. This study is the latest to associate good oral health with better overall health. The mouth is indeed the gateway to the rest of the body. That is how bacteria can most easily get into our blood stream and travel to other parts of the body. People who have gum disease or periodontal disease are at higher risk for heart disease, pre-term birth and other disorders. Preventative dentistry with regular dental hygiene visits for cleanings and gum therapy helps to improve oral health and overall body health. Capital Smiledocs Dental in Stittsville and Ottawa provides trusted preventative dental care and an effective periodontal program to help maintain optimal oral health. We also offer patient education on issues that affect oral health and provide detailed customized suggestions to improve oral health.
Preventative dentistry keeps our Capital Smiledocs Dental patients in Stittsville and Ottawa healthy by using regular dental hygiene visits to keep your smile sparkling white and your gums healthy. Avoiding gum disease and the accompanying inflammation is especially important for our diabetic patients.
