Often times patients hear Dr. Frankel say, “a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body.” If there is an infection in your mouth, those bacteria are able to travel throughout the rest of your body. In fact, poor oral health has lead to other problems including: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pregnancy complications, osteoporosis, and respiratory problems.

Therefore, it is important to have a healthy body that you pay particular attention to your oral health. Make sure that you are brushing twice a day and flossing daily. In addition, make sure you visit Frankel Dentistry twice a year, allowing him to fix problem areas, give you addition tips for keeping your mouth healthy, check for oral cancer, and help prevent further complications.
