Allure Dental believes in taking a preventative approach to dental care so your teeth will last a lifetime. Early detection is a key to avoiding costly and even painful dental problems. In fact, the major cause of tooth loss in adults is gum disease (periodontitis), which can be prevented with regularly scheduled dental care.
Many experts also believe that periodontal neglect can contribute to far more severe health issues such as heart disease. Oral bacteria can affect the heart when they enter the blood stream and attach to fatty plaques in the heart’s blood vessels. This can contribute to the formation of clots which can obstruct normal blood flow. You can read more about this by clicking here.
