Ottawa Dentist Celebrates Heart Month With Heart Healthy and Tooth Healthy Tips 

by David Bartos Tuesday, January 29, 2013
OTTAWA, ONTARIO - This February is National Heart Month in Canada and the U.S. Dentist in Ottawa Dr. David Bartos and his partner Dr. Mark Northcott realize the association between dental health and cardiovascular health.

Tooth Health and Heart Health
Poor oral health doesn't only give patients unattractive smiles, it can also affect other areas of the body. Periodontal disease can contribute to other health issues, including diabetes, preterm birth, respiratory issues, stroke and heart disease. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection, and bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the gums. Luckily patients can prevent periodontal disease with good oral care.

The Gateway to the Body
Teeth are important to everyday life; they help people talk, eat and smile. Patients should care for their teeth vigilantly to reduce the risks of cardiovascular disease. The Canadian Dental Association suggests patients brush twice daily, floss once daily and visit the dentist every six months. The dental office staff will ensure a patient has normal X-rays with no signs of gum disease or tooth decay.

Patients should also take a look at their diets. A sensible diet can reduce the risks of heart attack and stroke, while a poor diet can do lots of harm. Patients should choose water, vegetables, dairy and fruits whenever possible, and snacking between meals should be limited. Crunchy vegetables such as carrots and celery help clean the teeth while mushy fruits such as bananas can leave sugars on the teeth.

Regular dental cleanings will remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and reduce the risks of periodontal disease and heart disease. Trillium Dental offers sedation dentistry for patients with dental anxieties. They also offer Stittsville teeth whitening for a brighter, more attractive smile.

<30 Days To a Healthier Heart
Patients can download the free heart health app from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada to get simple tips for a healthier heart. The user enters his height and weight, and the app calculates a BMI estimate. The app then suggests food and exercise goals to help users get a healthier heart in less than 30 days.
