truc The dentist: Good for your heart!

There is a direct link between your cardiovascular health and your dental hygiene treatments at the dentist’s office and at home.

In fact:

  • People with periodontitis are at greater risk of suffering from a fatal heart attack.
  • They are also more subject to different cardiovascular diseases.
  • Pathogenic oral bacteria could be responsible for the formation of blood clots, which can block blood vessels.

Periodontal disease (inflammation of tissues supporting the teeth:alveolar bone and gums) can be avoided by regular monitoring by your hygienist.
