At Tri City Dental Care of Cerritos, we’re committed to helping our patients live healthy, smile brighter, and take a proactive approach to their overall health. With increased awareness and overall health issues in the medical field, Dentistry has become even more integrated with our medical colleagues. In 2000, the US Surgeon General report* stated that oral health is essential to the general health and well-being of all Americans, and that oral health is integral to general health. This report provides important reminders that oral health means more than healthy teeth and that you cannot be healthy without oral health.

At our office, we use clinical laboratory services from OralDNA Labs® to ensure we are giving our patients the best oral health information possible. OralDNA Labs® is a specialty diagnostics company designed to provide reliable, definitive and cost effective clinical tests that guide oral health professionals in detecting and prognosing disease at an earlier, more treatable stage.
The Mouth-Body Connection
Certain chronic diseases are sometimes shown to raise your gum infection risk. And, sometimes having gum disease is shown to raise your risk and severity of some chronic diseases.
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Liver disease, like hepatitis C virus
How does oral health affect the body?
How can we treat the infection in our mouths?
We typically need to remove the infection or source of the infection. We can extract teeth, do gum therapy (“deep clean”), do fillings, root canals, and others to remove the infected area or source.
Why does it matter if my gums are inflamed or I have an infection?
