As the New Year begins, we are strapped with bills and the hunger that this year will be better than the last. We make resolutions and set goals for ourselves, some that we meet and some that are all too soon forgotten or given up on. We, at Periodontal Specialists, would encourage you to make a commitment to your health and the health of your teeth and gums. Month by month, more and more studies and research are coming out linking the health of the mouth to many other diseases of the body including, Cardiovascular disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and some forms of cancer. It is of upmost importance that you take care of your health before you can take care of the health of your loved ones. Do yourself a favor and in this season of new beginnings, make an appointment with your Kansas City Periodontal office to evaluate your oral health and get you the smile to beam you into the New Year!
