Too many times we think that something must be wrong with our body when we get a cold or when there are aches and pains. However, your health problems may be starting with your gums and the health of your smile, not your body. Periodontal disease and tooth decay are one of the most treatable and preventable diseases and yet, too many people in the United States are not taking care of their smile.
Periodontal disease causes inflammation and bleeding in the gums, but did you know it is also an infection? This infection, when left untreated, causes your body to go into overdrive attempting to fight off the problem. The longer you go untreated, the more damage that can be done. It is critical to your health that you take care of dental problems, decay, broken or cracked teeth immediately to avoid further dental problems as well as more extensive health problems.
Not only do these common dental problems lead to health issues, people report that their self-confidence is lowered by an unhealthy smile and bosses around the United States share that a healthy smile is one of the first things they look for when interviewing. Don’t wait a second longer, get the healthy smile you deserve by contacting Dr. Strutz and her team.
