February is American Heart Month, and though the link between dental health and heart health is not totally clear, it is important to take care of both. The bacteria associated with periodontal disease cause inflammation and bleeding of the gums.

Make sure you are seeing your hygienist and dentist on a regular basis, and if you have periodontal disease, get appropriate treatment.
