February is the month of Happy Hearts and chocolate kisses. Here is something to consider if you have not been to see your dental clinic in awhile: poor dental hygiene can affect your heart. Bacteria from inflammation of the gums and periodontal disease can enter your bloodstream and travel to the arteries in the heart and cause hardening of the arteries. That can put you at risk of heart attack or stroke. Take a moment to check your smile and take care of your heart. Have a good month!
