Winter is a time of the year that it’s easy to get sick. From minor colds to pneumonia, lots of people worry about staying healthy at this time of year. One way you can help reduce your risk of getting pneumonia is by visiting your Garden City, NY dentist for regular six-month check-ups every year.
A recent study documented the well-known link between oral health and overall physical health. People who go to the dentist regularly are less likely to get pneumonia compared to people who don’t go to the dentist regularly. By visiting your Garden City Dental team every six months, your mouth and teeth will be healthier and you will be less likely to get pneumonia.
Whether you’re concerned about pneumonia or are just due for a check-up, call today to make an appointment with Dr. Dominique Lizzio, Dr. John Cerrato, or Dr. George Sheehan and protect your oral and overall health.
