Protect Yourself Against Mouth-Body Connection Risks
The first step to avoid succumbing to the dangers of the mouth-body connection is being aware of its existence. We hope the information we’ve provided here has given you a basic understanding of the potential for complications that can come from unchecked gum disease. We also hope it will inspire you to take steps to protect your gum health. Effective protection starts at home with good dental hygiene. Brush and floss your teeth and perform any routine maintenance as directed by your general dentist. You should also visit your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. If your gums begin to show signs of disease, contact our office for an appointment with Dr. Leavitt. He can help you avoid more serious problems down the road with services including gum disease treatment, minimally invasive laser gum surgery, and osseous surgery. An estimated 65 million Americans over the age of 30 suffer from gum disease, putting them at risk for more destructive consequences. You don’t have to be one of them!
