That’s why regular dental appointments are so important. At your dental exam, Dr. Morrison and his staff will be able to identify concerns regarding the health of your teeth and gums, which left untreated can lead to other health concerns throughout your body. His staff will provide you with necessary instructions and advice to correct the problems and improve both your oral health and overall well being. This is particularly important if you suffer from asthma, diabetes, depression or hypertension (high blood pressure) as these conditions, and the medications used to treat them, can adversely affect your oral health.
