Our smile is the link to our overall heath. When we have decay, periodontal disease, missing, broken and cracked teeth, it not only can impact your overall self-confidence but it can change your overall heath. Dr. Strutz and her team recommend scheduling a consultation in order to determine which restorative procedures can help get your smile and your health back where you want it.
The body-mouth connection is a powerful one that can keep you from living the life you wish to have. Research has shown that patients who have periodontal disease are 40% more likely to have heart disease as well. Our immune systems are designed to fight infection. The immune system does not ignore infection just because it is in your mouth or impacting your gums. As you continue to have an infection, your body's immune system continues to attempt to fight off the infection.
Infection in the body tends to weaken the body's ability to control blood sugar. As the infection continues to be a problem it can lead to other significant problems including heart disease, diabetes and more severe problems with your teeth. By visiting Dr. Judy Strutz and her team, you can stop decay and other problems in its tracks. A consultation can determine the primary problem and begin to help you turn decay, broken or cracked teeth into a healthy smile which in turn gives you the healthy lifestyle you want.
