Amherst, NY (PRWEB) May 11, 2016
Dr. James Lesinski is pleased to announce his involvement in honoring Stroke Awareness Month this May. By providing information about the link between stroke and gum disease in Amherst, NY, he now offers his patients the opportunity to identify and alleviate periodontal health risks. Not only is achieving and maintaining healthy gums essential for a beautiful smile, it is also a contributor to a person’s overall well-being.
It may not seem logical to associate periodontitis – a disease affecting the gums – with the critical health event known as stroke. After all, this life-threatening condition is typically caused by a clot that blocks the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the brain, leading to the death of brain cells, or by the hardening of arteries. However, medical research has verified this link through more than one study, identifying a higher risk of periodontitis in those who have suffered stroke. Dr. Lesinski joins the American Stroke Association in raising the public’s understanding of this preventable, yet often deadly, disease.
People who have gum disease in Amherst, NY, may not realize it because the first stages are generally symptom free. Bacteria and food acid create a sticky film over the teeth, and this must be removed through brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings to prevent it from hardening and causing infection. If the gums are tender, swollen or bleeding, it is often an early indication of periodontitis. Dr. Lesinski uses the latest technology to provide gentle, effective treatment and restore oral health. Those who have had oral infections in the past may require more frequent exams to prevent relapse.
Stroke Awareness Month this May provides the ideal opportunity for people in Amherst, NY, to learn more about the causes and effects of gum disease.
