Good oral health has been directly related to a person’s good overall health. Here at Terrace Smiles Dentistry, we help our patients understand how an unhealthy mouth affects them.
If you have gums that bleed when you brush and floss, gums that are red and puffy, and bad breath, you could have gum disease. Because your gums are the foundation of the health of your mouth, it’s important that the gum disease is treated.
“Your oral health is linked to your body’s health. Poor oral health leads to high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes and some forms of cancer. My purpose, as a dentist, is to heal my patients’ bodies through their teeth and gums.” – Dr. Witt
