New research supports the link between gum disease and heart disease

Traditionally, dentistry and medicine have been treated as separate fields. That has been changing in recent years with growing evidence of a link between oral health and systemic health. One of the most striking connections is that of heart disease. Although the nature of the link is not fully understood, previous research has determined an association.

A new study, conducted by researchers from the Department of Periodontology at University of Florida, is one of many designed to help us understand that connection. The preliminary findings suggest that severe periodontal disease may lead to an increase in risk factors for heart disease, such as high blood pressure.

Is your smile aging your face?

In today’s society, there is a growing focus on maintaining a youthful appearance. While many people watch vigilantly for wrinkles and gray hairs, they often overlook one of the most noticeable signs of aging – the smile. A rapidly growing, and highly effective, trend in anti-aging treatment is cosmetic dentistry to correct problems such as:
  • Short front teeth – Over time, the front teeth tend to wear down, making them less visible when you smile. Some people may even appear to be toothless.
  • Worn teeth – As wear and tear erodes the subtle shape and contours of teeth, your smile can become lifeless.
  • Crooked teeth – Straight or slightly crooked teeth can shift over time, especially if you have lost a tooth, leading to a noticeably misaligned smile.
  • Cracked or chipped teeth – What may seem like minor damage can cause serious cosmetic and oral health problems. Tiny breaks in the enamel trap food and plaque, leading to stains, and eventually, cavities.
  • Stains – The natural brightness of a young smile is tarnished by dark foods, beverages, tobacco use, thinning enamel, and other factors.
