Your mouth is linked to your overall health. In fact, it often contributes to your heart. If you have heart disease, there are certain things you need to do to care for your smile. There are also things you need to do to have a successful appointment at 21st Century Dental Care.

The first thing is to give Dr. Vitaly Friedman a list of drugs you are taking, especially the drugs that help with your heart disease. These drugs should include prescription and nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and supplements. Giving your dentist this list can help him understand the best course of dental treatment for you, your health, and your smile.

The second thing is to give your dentist the name of your cardiologist and their number. Doing so can help your dentist contact your doctor if he has any questions. It can also help him better understand your condition and your needed care.

The third thing is to tell your dentist and heart doctor about any nerves you have about undergoing dental treatment. If you do this, your doctors will be able to give you the right suggestions on how to eliminate dental pain and dental phobias.
