Oral Health as Part of Your Overall Health
We believe maximising oral health represents a crucial disease-prevention strategy. Poor oral health, particularly periodontitis (gum disease), is thought to contribute to a wide range of diseases ranging from rheumatoid arthritis, stroke and even cancer.
Bacteria thriving in the oral cavity contribute to inflammation, which can have detrimental effects throughout the body and may particularly increase the risk of atherosclerosis. Oral bacteria have even been found living inside atherosclerotic plaques.
At The Country Dentist we are dedicated to working with you to achieve, not only a beautiful looking mouth, but also a healthy mouth.
