Your blood pumps against your arterial walls as it circulates through your body. The amount of pressure your blood exerts can either keep you healthy or leave you at risk of developing a serious illness. High blood pressure can cause the following illnesses:
- Heart disease
- Vision loss
- Heart attack
- Kidney disease or failure
Since there are no symptoms of high blood pressure, it is important to continue regular blood pressure screenings to prevent the illnesses listed above. Our dentist can talk with you about what you can do to slower your blood pressure, such as eating less salt, exercising regularly, and taking any medication prescribed by your physician.
Your overall health is important to us! Dr. Barbara Flesch and her team look forward to keeping you healthy and happy. We invite you to make an appointment for your blood pressure screening today!
