Gum disease is related to cardiovascular disease, the cause of heart attack and stroke.
More recently, inflammation in gum tissue has been shown to be a factor in Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and a growing list of other systemic diseases.
In clinical trials patients with serious and stubborn inflammation from gum disease showed visible, dramatic, and rapid results!
Your dentist Dr. Eric Smith highly recommends ProVantage for his patients.
Whittaker Road Dental wants you to enjoy optimal health. Since oral health directly affects overall health, proper oral hygiene is extremely important. Gum disease and inflammation caused by poor oral health are linked to many health issues, including:
- Heart attack
- Pregnancy complications, such as premature birth and low birth weight
Fear not, Whittaker Road Dental now features AO (antioxidants) Pro Products, a line of soothing, refreshing rinses and gels, to help you maintain a healthy smile.
The Antioxidant Advantage
Naturally occurring antioxidants produced in saliva defend against bacterial infection and help minimize halitosis or bad breath. As we age, we produce less and less antioxidants, possibly leading to health issues such as oral cancer.
Using AO Pro Products helps boost antioxidant production in saliva, benefiting your oral health in a number of ways, including:
- Strengthening your defense against bacteria
- Improving the appearance of oral tissue
- Freshening your breath
- Counteracting damage from infection, inflammation, alcohol and nicotine
At your Ypsilanti Township dentist, your health is top priority. For more information on the benefits of AO Pro Products, please call (734) 480-3600 today!
