February is National Heart Month! Did you know that your dental health has a direct impact on your heart health?

We’re sharing a video today that talks about this very connection. When you brush your teeth twice a day, floss at least once, and visit your dentist for your semiannual cleaning and exam, you are taking the right steps to not only protect your smile but also your heart. If bacteria gets into your gums, it can get into your bloodstream, and lead to gum disease. As a result, that can often increase your risk for problems like heart disease.

That’s why we encourage you to practice good oral care habits! If you need to schedule your next cleaning and exam, call us today at 513-802-9440 to schedule your next appointment with Bell Dental Group in Cincinnati.
