You know that good oral hygiene and regular check-ups keep your teeth and gums healthy. But did you know that advanced hygiene and proactive tooth care could help improve and protect your overall health as well? It’s true.
Why Does a Healthy Mouth Matter so Much?
Recent studies have linked a variety of oral health issues to whole-body health issues. For example, periodontal disease has been linked with an increased risk of heart disease and strokes. If cavities are left uncared for they can cause abscesses, infections and loss of jawbone.
Preventive dental care combined with good at-home care is essential to keeping your teeth and gums healthy and strong. In fact, Dr. Huisman recommends a personalized, proactive smile care schedule for teeth cleaning that suits your lifestyle and health needs.
Regular cleanings give us the opportunity to keep an eye on your overall dental health, monitor the condition of your teeth and gums and allow us to identify any problems while they are small and easy to repair.
