Did you know that there is a link between your oral health and cardiovascular disease? New research shows that certain people may be predisposed to periodontal disease. The bacteria associated with periodontal disease is the same bacteria associated with heart disease. These bacteria cause plaque and tartar (soft and hard deposits) around teeth and in arteries. Take time at your next appointment to talk to the Wohlers Family Dentistry team about the connection between your mouth’s health and your body’s health.
