Every February, doctors of all disciplines and patients are reminded of the importance of their heart’s health during Hearth Health Month. At Stonebriar Smile Design, we strive to do our part when it comes to battling the biggest killer in the U.S. today. How do we do it? By monitoring the levels of bacteria in your mouth. More and more research is showing that oral bacteria, like that found in gum disease, is a leading risk factor for a variety of cardiovascular ailments. At our practice, we’ll keep an eye on your mouth, help you treat your gum disease, and work with your healthcare provider to make sure your heart is always well taken care of.
