Gum Disease and Systemic Health

Numerous research studies link gum disease and oral health with a range of serious systemic health conditions. Such issues include heart disease, stroke, diabetes, certain cancers, respiratory illness, pre-term labor and low birth-weight babies, among others. Many believe the root factor in this relationship to be inflammation caused by oral bacteria and their impact on other body systems. As a full-service practice, we offer effective treatments for all stages of gum disease to improve oral health and reduce the risk of health complications.
