Did you know that your mouth is a mirror of your body? Oral health and general health are connected in ways most people do not understand. Did you know, for example, that diabetes can increase the risk of gum disease, and gum disease can make it harder to manage diabetes? It is a double-edged sword! An oral disease is a chronic disease, which is a condition that can last a very long time. While preventable, chronic diseases are still the leading cause of poor health in America.
At Crawford Dental Care we understand how the health of your body affects the health of your mouth - and vice versa. We work with our patients to help establish good eating habits, promote better exercise routines, as well as offer many in-house procedures to help treat and reverse gum disease and other related problems. As one hand washes the other, good oral health helps promote a healthy body. For more information, give us a call today!
