Did you know the CDC reports that more than 29 million American suffer from diabetes? Did you know that another 86 million Americans suffer from pre diabetes? That is nearly one in three Americans! Additionally, over 70 million Americans have hypertension. Finally, the NIH states that more than 35% of Americans are obese. What this means is that there is a very high probability that you or someone you love suffers from one of these three medical problems. At Ponte Vedra Complete Dentistry, we are dedicated to not only providing the highest quality dental care to our patients but also to educating all within reach about oral health issues that we feel are important. Today we will tackle some serious oral health implications tied to the presence of these three maladies.
