The science is clear.

The health of your mouth and your body are connected, which is why gum disease is linked with a host of potentially serious overall health risks.

Cardiovascular disease is one of them, so if you want to protect your heart, you have to start showing your gums some love!

If you think visiting the dentist is only necessary when there’s a problem, you need to check out today’s video from the British Heart Foundation. It talks about the relationship between your oral and overall health and why it’s so important to keep your teeth and gums clean.

That happens at home and with help from your Visalia, CA dentist! Call Sequoia Dental Office today at 559-608-3533 to schedule your next checkup, or make one online
