Your oral hygiene can affect your overall health. Studies show that bacteria in the mouth have been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other serious medical issues. Researchers have also found a connection between gum disease and premature birth.
Regular visits to the dentist are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. During each visit, we evaluate the health of your gums, check for tooth decay and screen for periodontal disease and oral cancer.
Your hygienist can provide you with a wealth of information about your oral health. This includes teaching you how to brush and floss correctly, and how to care for your gums. Our hygienists are familiar with issues such as bad breath, teeth grinding, sports mouth guards, sensitive teeth, topical sealants, electric toothbrushes and teeth whitening.
