At Chichetti & Patel Dental Wellness, we believe in achieving optimal oral health and also in what dental wellness can do for your overall health as well. This is one of the reasons we are so passionate about our patients receiving routine oral care in our office. There is a link between oral health conditions and overall health. One example is gum disease. Since February is Gum Disease Awareness Month, we want to share some more information about this common disease and how a lack of treatment can cause great harm to your oral health as well as your overall health.
