Poor dental health linked to severe illness in the body!
New research has found links between poor oral health and the general wellbeing of the body
It is now general knowledge that in order to keep your mouth healthy you should brush and floss; it is drummed into us from an early age and becomes tiresome information as we get older. But what you probably do not know is the consequences of neglecting your oral health: not only do you run the risk of periodontal disease and tooth loss, you also run a higher risk of diabetes, stroke, heart disease and even cancer!
It has been found that the bacteria associated with the mouth, Streptococcus, is not harmful when kept under control however if allowed it will multiply and wreak havoc on teeth, gums and your body!
At Cortes Advanced Dentistry we ensure your oral health…
At Cortes Advanced Dentistry in Manhattan we have always understood the need for good oral health, and it is now more important than ever to ensure your dental habits are optimal. That is why we focus on holistic dentistry, and strive to maintain and help you keep all your natural teeth. If your oral health is poor and we diagnose you with periodontal disease, we can treat it with our laser periodontal gum surgery to ensure a faster and more effective treatment.
What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal (gum) disease is caused by an excessive accumulation of oral plaque. If not brushed away, the plaque will harden and become calculus which causes gums to recede and allow for plaque to fill between the teeth. This deteriorates the bone and results in tooth loss!
At Cortes Advanced Dentistry we endeavor to help each patient achieve the smile of their dreams, and offer a wide array of treatments to protect, treat and beautify your smile.
