Whether you go willingly for your check-up, or are hesitant about getting dental work done, Arbor Lakes Dental Care in Maple Grove wants to see you every six months to make sure you’re maintaining good dental health.
The modern view is that there is a connection between poor dental health and underlying, systemic conditions. To put it another way, a healthy mouth can help you maintain a healthy body.
Oral bacteria and inflammation may be associated with a host of health issues, from heart disease and endocarditis, to premature birth and low birth weights. Oral bacteria can spread from the mouth into the blood and cause serious, even life-threatening infection of the heart valves.
We aren’t trying to frighten anyone, but obviously these are serious issues. They’re also good reasons to brush and floss daily (twice a day is better), and see us at Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove every six months for a cleaning and checkup. We provide family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
