Dentistry used to be just about teeth, but not anymore. Over the last decade there has been a growing amount of research showing that the condition of your mouth can impact your overall health.

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is the biggest concern. It is a bacterial infection that can get into your blood stream easily when you swallow and travel to different organs in your body. It also causes chronic inflammation which has been linked to a number of diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and cancer.
