Your next dental checkup could help detect heart issues early

Categories: Oral Health

Dentistry isn’t just about teeth anymore! As Dr. Acton, Dr. Maj and our team have shared in previous blog posts, oral health issues have been increasingly linked to other health concerns, such as heart disease. Studies are beginning to suggest that patients, especially those with periodontal disease, are believed to have an elevated risk of heart attack and stroke. Since most patients are not regularly visiting a heart specialist, their regular visits to our Cary, NC dental office can help detect early warning signs of heart issues or disease.

Additionally, if it’s been more than six months since your last visit, give us a call!
