Oral Health and Chronic Kidney Disease
Do you include regular dental visits in your healthcare plan? It’s important that you do.
Periodontitis (advanced gum disease) is associated with diseases such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and chronic kidney disease.
What’s worse is that as we age, chronic kidney disease also appears alongside diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Added to this is the fact that smoking and obesity- risk factors for periodontitis- are also associated with chronic kidney disease.
When you work with a dental team who knows the risks and responds to them, you can feel confident that issues may be caught early when treatment is more successful and less disruptive to your life.
We are always on the lookout for connections between oral health and overall well-being at Wortley Road Dental so that we can be proactive with your health. Give us a call to schedule your family’s dental care appointments. Do you have dental phobia/anxiety? No problem! Our team are equipped with the resources to support you through your dental care.
