Preventive Oral Health Care
Good oral health enhances our ability to speak, smile, eat, and show our emotions through facial expressions. Preventive oral health habits such as regular dental care and good oral hygiene developed early in life can lead to better overall oral health throughout a person’s life.
We believe that your mouth is the doorway to your body and overall wellness. The best way to maintain a healthy mouth is through adopting good dental habits. It is important to have healthy teeth and gums as recent studies show that gum disease can be linked to heart disease and stroke, pneumonia and other respiratory diseases and diabetes.
Implementing good dental habits on a daily basis is a crucial aspect of preventative dentistry and fighting against the onset of gum disease and tooth decay. Flossing and brushing twice daily prevents the build up of plaque and tartar, but it does not catch everything, which is why it is important to visit your dentist for extra cleaning measures every six months.
