Did you know that maintaining oral health can boost your overall health? Science has drawn a strong connection between periodontal disease and other serious, chronic health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, pregnancy complications and respiratory disease.
Symptoms of periodontal disease include chronic inflammation of the gums, infection below the gum line and the presence of disease-causing bacteria in the mouth. Dr. Whisenant reminds patients in Dripping Springs, TX, that fighting periodontal disease through a commitment to oral hygiene not only reduces your chances of contracting gum disease and bone loss, but also of developing other serious illnesses.
