If you are prone to high blood pressure, make sure to tell your dentist so that they can check for signs of high blood pressure while doing dental work. Gum disease and high blood pressure have been linked and should be checked regularly. The stress from getting dental work done can also cause high blood pressure. Dentists can check blood pressure before they start to ensure your health during the dental check-up. If you have any concerns about high blood pressure, talk to your dentist before your next appointment.
