The mouth is the gatekeeper to your body’s overall health. Both the American Dental Association and American Medical Association agree that there is a very strong correlation between the health of your mouth to the overall health of your body.
Not taking care of your teeth can lead to more than just bad breath. There are links between heart disease, stroke, and more. Bleeding gums, cavities, dry mouth, or fungal infections can clue your dentist to check for more serious systemic problems such as diabetes, HIV, or leukemia. At Pewaukee Dental, we believe in treating systems that benefit your overall health.
