Heart Disease and Oral Health

We’re here to look after your smile, but there’s more to our services. We pride ourselves on being healthcare educators too. That means we stay on top of all the current trends that can affect your body and mouth.
Recent validated studies suggest that bacteria present in gum disease can travel throughout the body, triggering inflammation in the heart’s vessels and infection in heart valves. The highway that can transport these harmful organisms from your gums to the lining of your heart is your blood stream. In a worst-case scenario, bacteria from your mouth attaches itself to already damaged parts of that organ.

At BHD, we offer complete and thorough periodontal therapy. This service attacks the problem in your oral cavity before it gets a chance to travel.
