Your teeth and your heart are linked.

Posted Feb 23 2009 9:40pm
February is National Heart Health Month and I'm telling you again that poor dental health is linked to increased heart disease.

“A growing body of research suggests an association between severe gum disease and certain serious health conditions, such as heart disease – the number one cause of death in U.S. women,” said Altagracia Chavez, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon, Cleveland Clinic Heart Center, Cleveland, Ohio, and member of WomenHeart's Scientific Advisory Council.

Please make an appointment with your dental professional now.

Keep smiling.
