Gum disease affects more adults than cancer, diabetes or heart disease. With 74% of the population affected, only half are aware of it. Gum disease has long been associated with heart disease, strokes, pre-term births, and low birth weights. Now there are several connections between overall health and overall wellness. There are links to obesity, erectile dysfunction, pancreatic cancer, diabetes, dementia and rheumatoid arthritis.
When you have an appointment with Beatrice, our super-hygienist, you are thoroughly examined for the signs and symptoms of gingivitis and periodontal disease. Together, she and Dr. Tupac determine the necessary treatment to bring your gums to a healthy condition and we give you the techniques and implements to maintain their health, along with regular maintenance visits with Bea.
