Is your Dentist a Life Saver?How your dentist could save your life.

There has always been a suspected link between gum disease and heart disease. A new study has now revealed that the state of your teeth and gums can have a serious impact on your overall health.

Gum disease is linked to a raised risk of heart disease and strokes. There are also links to diabetes, premature births and obesity.

At Linden House Dental Practice we have long recognised that more teeth are lost in adults through gum disease than tooth decay and we strive to pass this message on to our patients. We reccommend 6 monthly visits not just for teeth but also to screen your mouth for gum disease. We also offer frequent visits to our hygienists should any problems be detected. more
