Capitol Periodontal Group Launches New Campaign to Encourage Healthy Gums

Capitol Periodontal Group Launches New Campaign to Encourage Healthy Gums

Capitol Periodontal Group is proud to be an official partner of the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of gum disease. With one in every two adults age 30 and older suffering from periodontal disease (commonly referred to as gum disease), Capitol Periodontal Group and the AAP are calling for Americans to Love the Gums They’re With.

Periodontal disease can lead to receding gums, bone damage, loss of teeth, and can increase the risk of other health problems such as heart disease and diabetes. Despite its prevalence, periodontal disease is hardly ever discussed, resulting in a lack of urgency for people to properly care for their gums. Simple steps like brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and receiving an annual comprehensive periodontal evaluation from a periodontist can help detect and prevent gum disease.

Nutritious remedies for heart health

Nutritious remedies for heart health

The beginning of the year is always a time for resolutions, and Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento physician Rajiv Misquitta, MD, has one for you that is very timely considering February is American Heart Month.

Adopt a plant-based diet—basically, be vegan.

That’s what Dr. Misquitta did six years ago after he had a heart attack followed by a five-way bypass surgery four months later. He was just 40 and in reasonably good health.

The Internal Medicine doctor was discouraged that medicine could not completely keep his health problems at bay, so he made what many people might consider a drastic move: He eliminated all meat, dairy, and added fat, such as olive oil and nuts, from his diet. That decision was based on research suggesting a healthy lifestyle can reverse heart disease. He hasn’t had any heart problems since starting his new diet.
