February is National Heart Month! Would it surprise you to learn that your oral health is directly connected to your heart health?
We’re sharing a video that discusses this very connection. When you experience dental health issues like gum disease, this infection can get into your bloodstream and increase your risk for health problems like heart disease and stroke. That’s why it’s so important to protect your oral health.
Make sure you are brushing twice a day and flossing at least once. You also want to visit the dentist twice a year for cleanings and exams. This type of preventive care goes a long way to defend against serious dental health problems.
