Fayetteville, Arkansas June is National Men’s Health Month and healthcare providers across the nation are dedicated to creating awareness for early detection and treatment of diseases that affect the men in our country. According to the Men’s Health Network, “On average, men die almost six years younger than women and suffer higher mortality rates for the top causes of death.”

Heart Health

The Mayo Clinic and the Center for Disease Control list the top two threats to men’s health as heart disease and cancer. This year, Fayetteville dentists, Dr. Kifer and Dr. Bowen is making a commitment to patients to be aware of the risk factors and how to protect friends and family from these diseases.

How Your Dentist Helps

Many issues involving overall health, including heart disease and a number of cancers, can be detected, monitored, or treated in the mouth. The American Heart Association cites that bacteria can enter the bloodstream from the mouth and cause several types of cardiovascular diseases, such as clogged arteries, stroke, and heart disease. “By staying on top of the latest in preventative care and dental technology we are able to provide comprehensive evaluations and ensure patients receive a proactive approach to long-lasting oral and overall health,” explains Dr. Kifer.
