Stroke / Heart disease

Cardiovascular disease causes the arteries in our bodies to become obstructed.

When this happens in the brain it causes a stroke and if it occurs in the heart it can result in a heart attack. Although the exact link is not fully understood it is known that people with gum disease are much more likely to have a stroke or a heart attack. Research shows that successful oral treatment can reduce the rate of arteries thickening, and help you to avoid serious health issues.
