Did you know ? Oral health is essential for any surgery!

Who would have thought that in order to have heart surgery, you must first have a dental check-up? Why ? How is it linked?

As you probably already know, before each surgical act the patient must go through a plethora of checks in order to minimize the risks associated with the operation.

One of the recommendations that the doctor can give to the patient is to have a dental exam. This may seem surprising at first, but with a few explanations the link will be more obvious.

The tooth is an organ in its own right of the human body, with its own vascularization, its nervous system and is attached to the jaw. Therefore, any infected tooth can transmit the infection to the rest of the body through the bloodstream. and increase the risks of surgical procedures.

So think about it! If you need to have an operation, don't hesitate to make an appointment with your dentist.

Take good care of yourself!
