I still say, ‘Shoot for the moon; you might get there.’

Buzz Aldrin


The last night’s snow moon reflects the sun just like your smile mirrors your overall health. The new moon is a great time to reflect and make choices toward health.

Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body

Why are Dr. Frankel and his staff always saying “Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body?” 7 quick facts that explain why maintaining good oral health is essential to achieving great overall health.

Oral health and overall health are not mutually exclusive, in fact, they are inextricably connected. WOW! That’s a lot of big words, but basically what we are saying is if you let the health of your teeth and gums decline, you are setting yourself up to get really, really sick.

Dr. Frankel with Patient

Routine cleanings, flossing, sealants and fluoride may seem like a hassle, but in reality

they are saving you from dangerous conditions such as heart disease and stroke.

1.) Gum Disease causes halitosis, better known as “knock-you-over bad breath.”

2.) 2x. Seeing double? Patients with gum disease are twice as likely to develop heart


3.) 3x. Triple what? Patients with gum disease have an increased risk of stroke triple that

of those patients without gum disease.

4.) 4x – the average increased cost of one restorative dental procedure as compared to a

regular checkup appointment.

5.) The number of primary things you need to do to maintain your healthy mouth:

 Brush 2x daily

 Floss 1x daily

 Visit 2x yearly

 Avoid tobacco products

 Eat a well-balanced diet

6.) 62% – The percentage of increased risk, according to Harvard researchers, for

patients with gum disease to develop pancreatic and kidney cancers.

7.) 7x. Women with gum disease are seven times more likely to deliver premature or

underweight babies.

It is so important to keep a healthy mouth in order to promote a healthy body! Don’t let

fear, cost, or time be a factor to keep you away. Dr. Frankel says, “I care about people’s

smiles and firmly believe that with a great smile, you can improve your appearance, self

confidence, and your life.” You can schedule a free consultation today.
