Did you know that February is American Heart Month? Dr. Thomas and the entire team at Thomas Family Dentistry think that it's a great time to take notice of the health of your heart. Cardiovascular disease remains America's number one killer, according to the American Heart Association. Studies have shown a correlation between gum disease and heart disease, underscoring the importance of good oral health care.
Visiting Thomas Family Dentistry on a regular basis can help prevent gum disease or at least catch it in its early stages. In observance of Heart Month, Dr. Thomas wants to remind everyone of the importance of "knowing your numbers"
- Blood Pressure (less than 120/80)
- Cholesterol (less than 200)
- BMI (less than 25)
If you have any questions, please call us at 918-455-0123. Remember that a Healthy Mouth begins with a visit to Thomas Family Dentistry.
