Care for Your Teeth to Remain Healthy

Scientific research proves that your dental health has a big impact on your general well-being. Your periodontist, Dr. Ryan Price, is dedicated to helping you achieve a healthy smile and healthy body. He uses his advanced experience, training and skill to ensure your optimal oral health. He has taken courses on the oral-systemic relationship, focusing specifically on whole-body health.

Early treatment of oral health issues is easier and could spare you from a number of other concerns:

  • People with gum disease have nearly twice the risk of heart disease. Harmful bacteria can spread from your mouth and lead to blocked arteries, heart attacks, and strokes. Periodontal disease has also been linked to blood, kidney, lung, and pancreatic cancers.
  • Periodontal infections make it more difficult to control blood sugar levels. Also, diabetes makes it more challenging to treat and maintain healthy gums. If you have both conditions, it is in your best interest to monitor them closely.
  • Jaw pain can indicate TMJ problems. Habits like teeth grinding often contribute to jaw stiffness, facial pains, and headaches.  You can ease those symptoms with a nightguard.
  • Most people with sleep apnea have never been diagnosed. Snoring is the most common symptom of this condition. Sleep apnea can increase blood pressure and raise your risk of cardiovascular disease, among other things. Let us design an appliance to stop your snoring and improve the quality of your sleep.
