BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Recognized as one of the leading causes of death, strokes and all of their debilitating effects bring grief and pain to millions of men and women all over the world. While death is the likely result of a severe stroke, losing the ability to speak or walk is a common result that many stroke sufferers know too well. There are many factors that can contribute to someone suffering from this condition, but scientific studies and research have found a link between periodontal disease and the likelihood for having a stroke. Fortunately, dental care from a professional is a key way to prevent the development and progression of periodontal disease, ultimately decreasing one's propensity for having a stroke. As a premier periodontist in Beverly Hills, Dr. Mahnaz Rashti provides life changing dental care for patients all over Los Angeles.
Scientists believe that periodontal disease can lead to stroke by releasing infectious bacteria into the blood stream during chewing and brushing, which can in turn promote blood clotting and affect blood flow to the brain. By undergoing routine visits to a periodontist or implant dentist in Beverly Hills, such as Dr. Rashti, patients can ensure that periodontal disease does not develop or progress. Having healthy teeth and gums not only decreases the chances of stroke, but the chances of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, pre term pregnancies, prostate cancer, and breast cancer as well.
Dr. Rashti specializes in dental implants in Beverly Hills, periodontal treatments, pocket reductions, sinus augmentations, full mouth reconstruction, and more. One of the reasons Dr. Rashti has become the go-to source for safe and effective periodontal treatments is the sincere compassion she has for the well being of her patients, as well as the extensive scholarly and working experience she has in the field of periodontics. In addition to years of experience as a clinical instructor and associate professor at UCLA and the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Hospital, Dr. Rashti was the winner of Best of LA's 2010 voter poll for Best Implant Dentist in Los Angeles.
