  1. Dentist goes to the Heart

    National Heart Health Month


    February is American Heart Month and you don’t have to be in a relationship to celebrate, just make a doctor’s/dental appointment. The month of February acts as a reminder to check in with our health, especially our heart health. That’s right, February isn’t just all about showing your partner that you care, but it is a time to show yourself some care.  

    Toledo Dentist is all Heart

    Heart disease can happen at any age and comes with many risks such as suffering a heart attack, stroke, or even death. Heart disease or cardiovascular disease is one of the top leading causes of death in our Nation. In fact, according to the Heart Foundation, it is the number one leading cause of death for women in the United States. This statistic is scary, but heart disease can be prevented. 


    Dental Education with Heart


    Educating those who are at high risk of heart disease will better increase their chances of beating it. The staff at Frankel Dentistry knows that there is a direct correlation between a healthy mouth and a healthy body. We promote the importance of a healthy body every day with all of our patients. But we decided to do more this past Friday.

    Showing they care by what they wear

    On Friday, February 8th, the Frankel Dentistry staff took part in the American Heart Associations National Wear Red Day. This campaign is part of their Go Red for Women cause that raises awareness about cardiovascular disease in women. Wearing red on the first Friday of February promotes the important topic of cardiovascular disease in women and how we can avoid it. The Frankel Dentistry staff wore red and took part in this conversation.

    Floss Daily

    A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. “Brushing and flossing daily and visiting the dentist for re-care wellness visits at least twice a year are important for overall health”, states Toledo, Ohio dentist Dr.  Jon Frankel.

  3. We love your Heart!

    Toledo Dentist celebrates Heart Health all year long.


    February is National Heart Health awareness month. Oral health affects your overall health. Periodontitis (gum disease) and heart disease share risk factors and
    may occur simultaneously. Thorough brushing can help lower levels of inflammation in your body which can lower your risk for heart attacks.              
    “Although the findings indicate a strong link between gum disease and heart disease, it’s still unclear whether one actually causes the other,” says the American Heart Association. The two conditions have some of the same risk factors, including smoking, poor nutrition and diabetes. Researchers believe that inflammation caused by periodontal disease may be responsible for the connection. 3
     

    Prevention is the best medicine to lower your risk. Health professionals recommend patients:

    • Brush and floss regularly 
    • Quit smoking
    • Manage their weight
    • Control their blood pressure
    • Eat a healthy, balanced diet
    • Stay active

    It’s important to see a dentist regularly to make sure your teeth, gums and tongue are healthy. Your dentist will be able to detect poor nutrition and signs of developing health problems.

     

     

     








  4. The staff at Frankel Dentistry often says, “a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body,” but did you know that visiting Dr. Frankel twice a year for a cleaning actually helps reduce your risk of heart disease. Why?

    1.) The state of your smile is like a fortune teller’s ball. Many times different problems can be seen even before other symptoms arise. For example, when it comes to your ticker. Your teeth may be a good place to start because people who develop periodontal (gum) disease are also at a greater risk of developing heart disease.

    2.) Treating periodontal (gum) disease improves heart health. As Dr. Frankel often states, “taking care of small issues before they become big problems,” is key in this situation. By treating gum disease, studies show that when the inflammation around the gums is treated it reduces the systematic stress in your body.

    3.) Regular cleanings lower the risks of gum disease even starting. Plus there are also tons of other great benefits- fewer fillings, healthier gums, and that Frankel smile that you can’t  help but show off.
