How heart disease and oral health are connected
Many have likely heard from their dentist or others how oral health is essential for one's overall health, with it being impossible for one to be totally isolated from the other. As of recent calculations, over 80 percent of Americans live with periodontal disease, with many usually never receiving a formal diagnosis. This could be because a patient's teeth might feel fine, thus he or she avoids the dentist, and doctor's visits are rarely focused on a patient's oral health.
