Healthy YOU Focuses on Gum and Oral Health
Healthy gums aren't just important for your oral health. Maintaining healthy gums can also be important for your overall health. Numerous research studies suggest an association between periodontitis, advanced gum disease, and other, more serious chronic health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
In fact, there are now several studies that suggest an association between advanced gum disease and heart disease or stroke. A healthy diet will help your bones and muscles to grow strong and for all of your body's systems to work together, so you can stay healthy. Plus, a healthy diet is necessary to keep your mouth, gums and teeth in good shape, too.
Healthy YOU is a Senior Center of Greater Richmond Program which occurs monthly on the last Wednesday of the month.
Join us on Wednesday, February 24th at 11am.
