February is American Heart Month! Would it surprise you to learn that your heart health and your oral health are connected?

Today we are sharing a video that talks about the connection between your heart and how you take care of your teeth. Your mouth is filled with bacteria, and when that bacteria builds up inside of your gums, it can lead to an infection. That causes things like gum disease! Many studies have found a connection between gum disease, and other more serious problems like diabetes and heart disease.

That’s why it’s so important to take care of your oral health. Brushing and flossing help, but that’s just the start! Make sure you visit us twice a year for regular cleanings and exams so we help you stay on top of your dental health.
