Studies Show Direct Link Between Periodontitis and Coronary Heart Disease

According to the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA), there is a direct link to periodontitis and coronary heart disease. Only a dental professional can diagnose and treat periodontitis, which is an inflammation of the tissue that surround and support the teeth and can eventually lead to tooth loss. It is very important to have regular dental exams and cleanings to help detect and prevent this disease from progressing.  Call the office to make an appointment with Dr. Lupy Gonzalez for an examination today!
