Dentistry is much more than just beautiful smiles; it’s important to your health. Serene Oaks Dental of Minneapolis shows the oral systemic link between keeping your teeth and gums healthy and your overall well-being. Proper attention to your oral health is estimated by some studies to increase life expectancy by 10 years or more! This is especially true for patients that are at increased risk of a heart attack, diabetes or are pregnant.
Researchers have discovered an important connection between periodontal disease and heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pre-term low birth weight babies, cancers, Alzheimer’s, respiratory disease, kidney disease plus others. The oral systemic link between periodontal and overall health remains very strong.
A new standard of care has been established to create a bridge between dentistry and medicine. We provide a thorough periodontal health screening so if you are at risk for systemic disease we can reduce the danger to your health by providing any necessary treatment for periodontal disease.
If you do require periodontal treatment it can now be done painlessly with lasers, avoiding surgery in most cases. The treatment has no side effects and, in fact, enhances your immune system and overall health.
Serene Oaks Dental feels strongly that prevention is of key importance, and therefore educates residents of the Minneapolis area about the oral systemic link in order for them to enjoy a long and healthy life! Consult us today to learn more.
