With this in mind, Dr. Sam Antoon and his team of dental hygienists and assistants in Plano, TX, suggest that you and your family avoid these five foods and beverages for a happy and healthy smile.

When most of us think of gum disease, the first thoughts that come to mind are typically bleeding after brushing, bad breath, and even gum line recession. While all of these are certainly common symptoms associated with periodontal disease, there are actually even more severe complications to keep in mind as well. At Antoon Family Dental in Plano, TX, Dr. Sam Antoon and his team offer a wide variety of general and preventive dentistry services to families from throughout the DFW Metroplex, including periodontal therapy for the treatment of gum disease.
The Mouth Body Connection: Systemic Health
If you envision the mouth as a portal to the rest of the body, it’s not hard to see why treating gum disease is so vital to overall well-being. When bacteria from around and beneath the gum line are allowed to enter the bloodstream, serious problems can result. In fact, recent studies have linked untreated gum disease with a number of potentially life-threatening conditions, including the following:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis
- Cancers of the blood and the pancreas
- Respiratory illness, including pneumonia
- Higher risk of premature birth and low birth weight in pregnant women
- Heart attack
Fortunately, periodontal therapy can help you to dramatically reduce your risk of developing these and other complications associated with gum disease. With regular visits with Dr. Antoon and his experienced, caring team of oral healthcare professionals, you can enjoy not only a healthier smile, but a healthier body as well.

Do you suffer from frequent headaches and jaw pain? Are your mornings spent in discomfort due to facial aches and sore muscles in your neck and back? These are among the most common symptoms associated with temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ dysfunction. This condition affects millions of men and women in America, often causing severe pain and interfering with daily activities. Fortunately, there is a non-invasive TMJ disorder treatment available at Antoon Family Dental in Plano, TX. Dr. Sam Antoon offers an extensive range of general and family dentistry solutions, including TMJ disorder therapy.
Benefits of TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joints are the tiny, triangular structures that connect your jaw to your skull. When the cartilage, nerves, and blood vessels become irritated, the result is chronic pain in the jaw, head, neck, face, shoulders, and upper back. TMJ disorder may be caused by a variety of issues, but the most common are injuries to the jaw and an improper bite (malocclusion). With a custom oral appliance – often called an oral splint or a nightguard – Dr. Antoon can help you stop clenching your jaw in a way that suits your lifestyle.
A TMJ nightguard properly positions your jaw, easing stress on the muscles and joints affected. Most patients notice a marked improvement after just one night of use. Why continue to suffer from continuous pain and ongoing damage to your joints? A custom TMJ nightguard could be all that is needed to prevent future discomfort caused by jaw clenching.
Schedule Your Consultation Today
If you spend every day enduring the pain caused by TMJ disorder, there’s never been a better time to discover the relief you need and deserve. Contact us today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Sam Antoon and his caring, experienced team of oral health professionals.
