High-Tech Dentistry and Compassionate Care for the Whole Family
We’ve been taught since childhood that brushing and flossing and twice-yearly checkups at a dentist, like Carter Reeves of First Impression Dental, are essential for the health of your teeth.
But did you know that good dental health is important for your overall health as well? In a 20-year study published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Health, researchers found a significant relationship between gingivitis (early-stage gum disease) and coronary heart disease (CHD) and cerebrovascular disease (CVD).
This means poor dental health can contribute to heart attacks and strokes.
Since then, gingivitis has been linked to premature and low birth-weight babies, rheumatoid arthritis, and even dementia.
We take this risk seriously at First Impression Dental for all our patients, children (ages 1 and up) and adults.
