Weslaco Family Dentistry and Harlingen Family Dentistry joined with Knapp Medical Center's health fair, "Kidney Care" by providing important information regarding the link with Kidney Disease and Oral Health. Kidney Disease can lead to bad breath, dry mouth, inflammation in the salivary glands and even gum disease.
The buildup of bacteria in the mouth weakens the immune system, making the patient prone to additional oral health dangers.
Having regular checkups and cleanings and exams help avoid dental problems like gum disease and tooth decay. This especially important if you suffer from Kidney disease.
Call Weslaco Family Dentistry for your and your family's checkups and cleanings. 956-375-2467
