Oakville Dentist Discusses the Link Between Gum Disease and Heart Problems

There are more than enough studies in the field of dentistry today to safely say that periodontitis can lead to heart disease and other systematic problems. Previously, a poorly understood correlation, it has since been shown that the bacteria found in the hearts of patients with heart disease is often the same bacteria that is found in the mouth. Oakville dentist Dr. Arun Narang points to several studies with similar findings.

Make it a habit to visit a leading dentist in Oakville to have your teeth and gums checked for signs of problems on a regular basis. Early detection is important in preventing heart attacks and strokes from occurring. With proper diet and exercise, the positive effects of proper oral hygiene and dental care can be increased tenfold.
