It is scientifically proven and commonly accepted that the health of our mouth reflects the overall health of our body. Scientific studies have shown that periodontal disease is directly linked to various diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis and others. Still, it has been proven that the chronic intake of several drugs of wide circulation affects the state of the mouth and is directly related to the disease of gingivitis and periodontitis.

     In these cases, it is absolutely essential that our dentist performs a regular preventive checking as well as the good oral hygiene the patient should have, in order to maintain the gums and teeth in excellent condition.
