Periodontal disease can be a gateway to other conditions

Brushing daily can help people avoid periodontal disease Numerous organizations and professionals have often stated the importance of proper dental care, but some people may still be unclear as to why it's so important to brush their teeth on a daily basis.

Poor dental health can lead to other conditions, such as heart disease and other cardiovascular illnesses. In fact, some dental professionals have offered specific treatments to help people avoid periodontal disease and tooth decay.

Recently, Dr. Mahnaz Rashti, a periodontist from Beverly Hills, California, announced her specialized dental treatment that she claims can "control the progression of periodontis and help prevent the development of cardiovascular disease."

Though the details of Dr. Rashti's treatment were not completely revealed in the press release, she stressed that maintaining good dental health is important in the fight against periodontal disease and tooth decay.

Brushing twice a day, flossing and regular dental checkups are key to having optimal dental care, in addition to maintaining a healthy balanced diet. Foods with a high amount of sugar can lead to plaque buildup in the mouth.
