Want to add years to your life?

Well improve your oral health! Our physical health and dental health are linked. Recent studies have shown that certain types of gum disease reflect your overall health.

You can hear your mother’s words in your head every time you brush your teeth. A constant reminder that sugar bugs are bad and you have to brush and floss every day. And now that you are an adult, you have to admit, she was right.

Keep your gums pink!

The regrettable reality is over 75% of adults show indications of gum disease. Factors that influence this are: too much sugar and starch in your diet, smoking, poor oral hygiene and stress (to name a few).

If left untreated, gum disease can lead to:

  • low birth weight in newborns
  • heart disease and strokes
  • ineffectiveness of insulin in diabetics
  • osteoporosis and diabetes

Kelowna Dentist: A special note for medically at-risk patients

Periodontal exam and treatments make sense for medically and at-risk patients. People who are medically at-risk include those with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, pregnant women, immune compromised patients and those taking medications that affect the gums (i.e. epileptics).

If you have diabetes or take medications Dr. Palmer will want to know about it.
