February is National Heart Month Are your gums infected… your heart could be next!

Heart disease is the leading cause of death among Americans and a leading cause of disability. It is estimated that in the year 2006 1.2 million Americans will have their first or recurrent heart attack. Prevention is the answer. Everyone has heard healthy eating habits, exercise, and weight loss are the answer, but what about your teeth? Do you get frequent pain in your mouth? Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth? Have you noticed spaces in your teeth or receding of your gum line? If you suffer from any of these symptoms, you have a periodontal problem that needs to be evaluated and treated immediately. Long term effects of this can cause severe health problems, especially if you are already at risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Expecting mothers have to be extremely cautious as well. If gum disease goes untreated it can cause premature births. If you are prone to lung infections, gum disease can worsen your condition. Your mouth is considered the gateway for germs getting through to your respiratory system and by breathing in the bacteria that exists with gum disease, it is possible to contract such diseases as pneumonia. That is why it is so important to get your teeth cleaned regularly, and to practice good home care, such as flossing once a day, brushing on a regular basis, and using a good mouthwash. Here at Barotz Dental, we want to help you avoid these problems, and if you already suffer from gum disease, then we want to treat it, and monitor it!
