Your mouth is a window into what’s going on inside your body and Dr. Michael Eisenbrock of Bensalem Family Dentistry can assist you in keeping that window as clean as possible. If you have periodontal disease make sure you visit our practice frequently and get it treated promptly before it progresses to the point of tooth decay or it starts to affect your overall health. To understand how the mouth can affect the body, it helps to understand what can go wrong in the first place.
Oral health means more than just an attractive smile. Poor oral health and untreated oral diseases and conditions have a significant impact on quality of life. In many cases, the condition of the mouth mirrors the condition of the body as a whole. Conditions such as periodontal (gum) disease can be precursors to scary stuff like cognitive decline, diabetes, and other systemic diseases. This is why it is important to schedule routine dental cleanings twice a year, on top of brushing and flossing at least twice a day.
