Since February is American Heart Month, it is a great time to take note of your heart health! Cardiovascular disease remains America's number one killer, according to the American Heart Association.  Studies have also shown that there is a correlation between gum disease and heart disease, which underscores the importance of good oral health care!

Visting our office on a regular basis can help to prevent gum disease or at least catch it in its early stages. How?  Our Dental Team checks each patient for gum disease at each check-up exam and cleaning. Having your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis reduces the oral bacterial count, which can lead to the development of gum disease.

In observance of Heart Month, it is important to know your heart health numbers!

  • Blood pressure: less than 120/80
  • Cholesterol: less than 200
  • BMI: less than 25

If you have any questions or are in need of an appointment, call our dental office at 918-455-0123!

God Bless,
Dr. Thomas
