As an experienced Buffalo Endodontist, I often get asked by patients whether their oral health correlates to their general health. Many recent studies have shared news about your overall health, including oral health. Physicians and researchers are conducting studies that reveal direct relationships between periodontal gum disease and heart disease and diabetes. Our entire body works interdependently. If you’re diabetic and unable to keep your mouth in its healthiest possible condition, it can actually affect your diabetes, and vice-versa. It’s essential to make sure that, if you’re seeing your physician regularly, you’re also seeing your dentist regularly to make sure your mouth is as healthy as we can keep it.
If you have questions about your oral health, contact our Buffalo Dental Office at 716-675-4828 to schedule an appointment with an experienced Endodontist.
