Dentists specialize in keeping your teeth bright, shiny, and healthy, but did you know that they do much more than that too?  Your mouth is a window to the rest of your body.  By getting regular dental exams and cleanings, your risk for heart disease, stroke, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and respiratory problems could be reduced.  Part of Dr. Komyathy’s job is to look for warning signs of periodontal disease.  This is caused when the bone surrounding your teeth starts to deteriorate, eventually leading to tooth loss.  When these bad bacteria in your mouth travel to the rest of your body, it can lead to serious health conditions.  Be sure to schedule regular cleanings every 6 months.  By visiting the dentist, you are keeping your whole body healthy!
