There is a large amount of evidence that shows how the health of the mouth affects the health of the body. For instance, gum disease can increase your risk for cardiovascular disease, bacterial lung infections, stroke, pregnancy complications, and even Alzheimer’s disease. In turn, diabetes, osteoporosis, and medications can increase your risk for developing problems in the mouth.
At Musso Family Dentistry, we work to maintain your oral and overall health. Our dentists provide professional cleanings, treatments, and procedures to improve the wellbeing of your teeth and gums. We also strive to educate our patients about dental care and its effect on the wellness of the body. A healthy diet, exercise, and good oral hygiene are imperative in improving and maintaining total health and wellness.
