|The American Heart Association acknowledges the value of good oral hygiene to maintaining good overall health. This is especially true when it comes to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. |
About 75 percent of the population has some form of gum disease but most of us don’t even know we have it. It’s a huge benefit to treat this at the earliest stage to avoid gum disease and maintain good oral health.

|There’s a growing body of research to indicate that gum disease is linked with the incidence of all kinds of common health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. |
Part of the problem is that gum disease is painless, so people may not even realize that they have a problem. But a survey by the Journal of Dental Hygiene found that the reasons range from concerns about cost and missing work to fear and embarrassment.
The good news is that oral cancer can be treated if discovered early – that’s why screening is so important. At Aspen Dental, they offer patients a screening called Vizilite Plus, which uses a blue-light, “glowstick” technology to detect oral cancer.
