We believe in preventative oral health as a means to help you keep both a healthy smile and a healthy body.
Did you know that approximately 90% of all systemic diseases have oral manifestations? Moreover, gum disease is a primary indicator of a number of serious chronic conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, pregnancy complications, and more. Regular dental oral examinations allow the dentist to identify any existing oral problems before they worsen.
Many Americans are unaware of the basic role teeth play in their bodies and how oral health and overall health are linked. They might not understand that each tooth is an organ in its own right. This means that damages done to the teeth through lack of proper preventative care are permanent. Teeth are most susceptible to such damage during the growth and development phase: from the womb into adolescence. This is why childhood dental care is so important. Additionally, pregnant mothers need to maintain good oral healthcare to ensure both their own health and the health of their unborn child.
Regular visits to the dentist allows your dentist to catch oral problems early, which can save you money. Regular visits will also allow the dentist to evaluate any changes that might be due to systemic illness. So those regular trips will likely save your teeth, save you money, and might just save your life!
