February is National Heart Month! It might surprise you to learn that your oral health has a direct impact on your heart health.
Today we’re sharing a video that talks about the connection between your oral health and your heart. By maintaining your oral health, you are protecting your heart from harmful bacteria that can get into your bloodstream through your gums. Dental health problems like gum disease can actually increase your risk for heart disease, stroke, and more.
Make sure you are brushing twice a day and flossing at least once, as well as keeping your seminannual cleanings and exams. For help maintaining your oral health, call Powers Family and Implant Dentistry at 812-645-0620 to schedule an appointment in Lyons, IN.
