February Is Also Heart Month!

added on: February 10, 2013

At Trade Winds Dental, we recently highlighted February’s importance as National Dental Health Month, emphasizing regular check-ups every six months or as tailored to your needs. But, there’s more to February than just dental health—it’s also American Heart Month. This time calls for a closer look at health, especially since heart disease remains the leading cause of death worldwide, according to the American Heart Association.

The connection between your mouth’s health and your heart’s health is stronger than you might think. Studies show a link between gum disease and heart disease, stressing the importance of good oral hygiene. By visiting us regularly, you can prevent or catch gum disease early on. During Heart Health Month, it’s also key to know your vital health numbers: aim for a blood pressure under 120/80, cholesterol below 200, and a BMI under 25.

Heart Health Month is a reminder from us at Trade Winds Dental of the big picture—taking care of your oral health is a step towards taking care of your heart. We’re here to help you achieve both. If you have any questions about your health, or if it’s time to book your next appointment, just give us a call. Let’s focus on keeping both our smiles and hearts healthy. Your well-being is our top priority, and we’re committed to guiding you towards a healthier heart and a brighter smile.

If you’re curious about the link between oral health and overall health, wondering about the best practices for dental care, or if it’s simply time for your regular dental check-up, don’t hesitate to reach out. Our friendly staff is here to assist you with scheduling your appointment, answering any questions you may have, and making sure you feel informed and confident about your dental health decisions.
