ALTON — A free wellness seminar is being offered from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 23, at Senior Services Plus.
Humbert Family Dentistry representatives will speak about their services, including cleaning and preventative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dental treatment such as implants, partials and dentures; root canals and more.
The presentation will highlight the importance of having effective dental care aimed at addressing a person’s overall health.
Poor oral health has been linked to serious diseases, including diabetes, dementia, stroke, heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Gum disease has been linked to other diseases, as damaged gums can expose a person to additional health complications. Oral cancer, temporomandibular disorders and other oral health care issues also have been linked to further medical symptoms.
