The Link Between Heart and Gum Disease

    Anyone who uses any form of tobacco (smoking cigarettes or cigars, vaping, or chewing) are far more likely to have dental problems, which is why quitting immediately can reduce your risk of getting gum disease as well as mouth cancer. For help, ask your doctor about tobacco cessation aids, like nicotine patches, gum, as well as medication.
    If you want to protect your heart, start by improving your dental health. Choose a dentist you like and schedule appointments at least two times every year to reduce your risk of periodontal disease and improve your oral health. Our practice in Canton, OH has experienced, board-certified professionals who focus on diagnosing and reversing all stages of periodontal disease. Fight against gum disease by getting a dental examination plus following an oral care routine at home to make sure you have a gorgeous smile.
