Dr. William P. Caldon, D.M.D., co-owner of Plattsburgh’s High Peaks Dental, shares the surprising ways gum disease can affect overall health and wellness.
Plattsburgh, NY — April 11, 2016 — Renowned Plattsburgh dentist Dr. William Caldon published a new blog post entitled “4 Surprising Reasons to Care about Oral Health.” In the post, he shares medical research showing the links between oral health and heart disease, strokes, infertility and diabetes.
Says Caldon, “For most of us, dental care is important because we want white teeth and a pretty smile, but there is more to oral health than meets the eye. Medical research consistently shows a link between your oral health and your overall health in many areas. There are four surprising reasons to prioritize your oral health. Unhealthy gums are linked to an unhealthy heart, can lower fertility and cause pregnancy problems, worsen diabetes and make you miss the early signs of oral cancer.”
Dr. Caldon has been a co-owner of High Peaks Dental since 1996 after serving in the
United States Air Force for 20 years and retiring as a Colonel. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Louisville and his Bachelor’s from Thomas More College. In 2013, USA Today featured Caldon as one of America’s Premier Dentists.
