Dental care at Northside Dental is more than just superficial care and repair of the teeth.
We understand how your overall health affects your dental health.
High blood pressure is the most important factor leading to heart disease, heart attacks and stroke in adults.
If your blood pressure is high, it can also lead to increased bleeding or difficulty freezing (local anesthetic).
In addition, any situation that causes stress could lead to an increase in blood pressure- even undergoing dental work.
If your blood pressure is already high, it could lead to a potentially dangerous situation. Even prompt a heart attack or a stroke during your dental appointment.
Even if you are taking medication for hypertension, your blood pressure should be monitored.
For most healthy patients, undergoing dental work has no effect on their overall health.
For patients with certain health concerns, appropriate precautions must be taken prior to treatment.
Since your health and safety is our concern, we take your medical history very seriously!
Please feel free to ask any of our health professionals if you have any questions or concerns regarding your dental visit today.
