San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) March 06, 2015
Last month, Dr. Dental celebrated American Heart Month by helping their patients maintain good oral hygiene and heart health. To mark the occasion, the dental group shared tips and advice on how good oral hygiene can positively affect heart health.
According to WebMD, there is a link between oral hygiene and heart health. Experts note that taking good care of oral hygiene and heart health is beneficial for both. Evidence shows that the two have some commonalities. For example, inflammation is a common problem in both gum disease and heart disease.
Much research has been done on the link between dental health and heart health. According to WebMD, gum disease has been found to be a risk factor for coronary artery disease and for diseases of the blood vessels and arteries that supply the brain. There is also a link between clogged arteries in the legs and gum disease.
Dr. Dental advises patients to take good care of both oral health and heart health. With good periodontal care, patients could lower the risk of heart disease and gum disease. Dr. Dental recommends brushing and flossing regularly and visiting the dental office for regular cleanings.
Dr. Dental currently offers five convenient locations to their patients. They have three San Antonio, TX locations, one Converse, TX location and one Lytle, TX location. For more information about Dr. Dental, call 1-844-2-ORANGE or visit their website at http://drdentaltx.com/.
