Link between heart disease and gum disease
Clinical studies have shown a link between gum disease and heart disease. The bacteria in the mouth that cause gum problems are able to enter the bloodstream to infect heart tissue. Our dentists recommend a full gum check once a year, measuring the gum attachment. Twice yearly cleans are also advised. This is in accordance with a good home care regime of brushing twice a day and flossing.
