If you look after your teeth and gums, you are looking after the rest of your health.
The links between the health of your teeth and gums and its impact on the rest of your body’s health are growing by the day. It’s easy to be suspicious of a private Dentist saying this, but the evidence is mounting up. The link between gum disease and heart disease is a well established one. But researchers are drawing links between the health of your mouth with Cancer and Alzheimers disease. Whilst a healthy mouth will not totally eliminate the risk of disease in other parts of your body it does raise an important flag to the state of your general health.
At Keppel Advanced Dentistry in Sutton, Surrey we provide dental hygiene treatments that can keep your healthy mouth in tip top condition as well as making you aware to any dental health concerns that may need one of our Dentist’s to treat. In the UK as many as 1 in 4 people have an extreme fear of a dental appointment. However, sometimes this fear can be alleviated by spending time in our waiting room just chatting to our practice manager, Jenny Jarvis, and understanding that we are here to help.
