With Valentine’s Day almost here, there’s no better time than now to bring up the connection between your head and your heart. Often, the heart, when it’s thought of at all, is pictured as something decorative. But the heart is a vital organ, and its wellbeing is at least partially dependant on the health of your smile.
Regular visits with Dr. Hornstein give us the chance to check your teeth and gums for signs of gum disease, a condition which, if left untreated, makes it possible for bacteria and plaque to gain access to your bloodstream and, by extension, the rest of your body.
So, while you’re appreciating one side of the smile-heart connection on Valentine’s Day, we hope you’ll also keep in mind that other smile-heart connection that determines the health of both.
If you’re ready to schedule a visit for February, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our Beachwood dental office. Dr. Hornstein would be happy to answer any questions you might have about the oral health-heart health connection.
Give us a call today! We serve patients Beachwood, Cleveland, Solon, Shaker Heights, Pepper Pikes, and surrounding areas.
