Medical science has shown that problems with your oral health can impact your entire body, sometimes in very serious ways. These problems generally occur when bacteria related to gum disease travels through the blood stream, impacting major organs including your heart and brain. Left unaddressed, your periodontal health issues can lead to problems far more serious than periodontitis:
Centers for Disease Control estimates show that nearly 65 million American adults over the age of 30 suffer from gum disease. It’s a frightening prospect when you consider the potential for serious health problems that number represents. With treatment from someone as extensively trained in periodontics as Dr. Blue, you have nothing to fear.
