Oral Health plays a role in your overall health!
We aim to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. Prevention and education is key! That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. Most dental problems such as dental disease (cavities and gum disease) are painless until the damage is already done. The standard recommendation is to visit twice a year for checkups and cleanings. We will determine the frequency that is best for you as an individual.
Your oral health is more important than you may realize. The health of your mouth, teeth, and gums, can affect your general health and overall wellbeing. Like many areas of the body, your mouth has A LOT of bacteria – most of them harmless. Normally the body’s natural defenses and good oral healthcare, such as daily brushing and flossing, can keep these bacteria under control. However, without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease. In addition, certain medications – such as decongestants, antihistamines, painkillers, and diuretics – can reduce salivary flow. Saliva washes away food and neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth, helping to protect you from microbial invasion or overgrowth. Studies also suggest that oral bacteria and the inflammation associated with periodontitis – a severe form of gum disease – might play a role in some disease. So be proactive! It’s your health and your mouth, and it’s time to take control, and we’re here to provide exemplary dental services to guide you!
