Your overall health is tied very closely to your oral health. You may already know that problems with your smile can result in gum disease and damaged or even lost teeth. However, dental problems can also complicate diabetes and contribute to cardiovascular and respiratory problems. If you would like to discover just how your oral health affects your health in general, call Springwater Dental at 503-228-5059 to schedule a dental appointment in Portland, Oregon, with our dentist, Dr. Paul Chung.
