The Heart and Mouth Connection

According to the American Dental Association and the American Medical Association, there is a relationship between the condition of the gums and the condition of the cardiovascular system. Gum health is primarily a result of oral care, personal habits, and, to an extent, genetics. With appropriate effort and proper hygiene, threats to the health of our gums can be eliminated or controlled. However, failure to maintain gum health has other health consequences. Sub-optimal conditions of the heart can be traced to unhealthy gums, underscoring how important oral health care is.
