How Oral Health Affects Your Heart Health

When you visit your dentist for an exam and teeth cleaning, you aren’t just taking care of your oral health. The health of your mouth has implications for your systemic health as well, especially the health of your heart.

Watch this video to learn about the impact of oral health on your heart health. Bacteria in gum tissue can cause inflammation in your blood vessels that is dangerous for your heart. Regular teeth cleanings are likely to be part of your care plan if you have heart disease, and they are an important part of preventing heart disease if your heart is currently healthy.

At Glenwood Premier Dental, we provide comprehensive dental care for everything from gum disease to oral cancer. Make an appointment with our dentist in Hazlet by calling (732) 264-4477.
