Preventative dental care means more than just a bright smile!
Seeing your hygienist and dentist regularly for cleanings play an important part in:
- Preventing gum disease
- Saving you money
- Reducing your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes
- Having a healthy baby
- Reducing your risk of tooth loss and dental problems
- Keeping your breath fresh
Did you know that keeping your mouth healthy can help prevent heart disease, aid in the control of diabetes and promote healthy pregnancies?
It’s true. Without routine dental care, plaque builds up on your teeth and gums and can lead to periodontal disease, making you more vulnerable to heart disease, clogged arteries and stroke. Gum disease and resulting infections can also cause blood sugar levels to rise, making the control of diabetes more difficult. Furthermore, studies have shown that pregnant women with gum disease may be seven times more likely to deliver prematurely
These facts say a mouthful, but the bottom line is that good oral care is imperative to overall wellness. There’s simply no question that a healthy mouth can lead to a long, healthy life and we are commited to helping you keep your smile for a lifetime.
