Your teeth affects your overall health, with gum disease linked to lots of health problems.

According to Dr Nigel Carter, Chief Executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, the link between oral health and overall body health is well documented and backed by robust scientific evidence. Despite this, only one in six people realises that people with gum disease may have an increased risk of stroke or diabetes. And only one in three is aware of the heart disease link.





The good news is that brushing your teeth properly and visiting your Newbury dentist  can prevent and treat gum disease, improve your overall health and help to reduce your risk of health problems.
