Over the next few weeks we are excited to be introducing a new health check for our patients! As one of the few practices in the area offering this we are very proud to be moving forward to support our patients overall health not just their oral health.
There have been many studies that have shown a link between oral health and overall health. Poor oral health has been linked to systemic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia, arthritis and even some pregnancy complications.
Your mouth is the gateway to your body studies have shown that oral pathogens have been detected within areas of the body that are infected or carry disease. Further studies show inflammation of the mouth (periodontal disease) are linked to many other diseases of the body.
WE ARE PROUD TO OFFER YOU DENTISTRY THAT OFFERS MORE
We are now equipped with some basic clinical tools to implement the best care for our patients- this should not be exchanged for any medical appointments/advice you might have, rather compliment anything ongoing or help to detect any early issues.
Next week we will be sharing a Vlog by Zoe to give you some more information about this new service we are offering. We are very excited to be able to support our patients further with their overall health!
