American Heart Association Report on Tooth Loss and Stroke Risk
According to a study by the American Heart Association, tooth loss has been linked to increased stroke risk. Tooth loss and periodontal disease have been shown to increase the risk of Ischemic strokes. Ischemic strokes result from a blockage in an artery leading to the brain. They are the most common types of stroke.

Oral sedation, or Sleep Dentistry, is fast becoming the preferred method of dental procedures by more and more patients. This option allows Dr. Stan Crawford at Grove Dental, who has received advanced training in all areas of oral sedation, to do in a few visits what would take a series of visits over several years! What's more, it allows patients who have had unpleasant experiences in the past to rest at ease and in comfort while the doctor works.
While many younger patients in the dental care office are cooperative and manageable without the need for sedation dentistry, there are a significant number of children who cannot tolerate dental care without the use of sedation during these dentistry techniques.
A sleep dentist can administer local anesthetics such as nitrous oxide to children, which is extremely safe, and represents the ideal means of eliminating any pain associated with dental care treatment.
