Oral Maintenance Care
Dental hygiene is very important even if an individual cleans their teeth and gums regularly. Controlling gum disease and deeper cleanings within the spaces of your teeth help with preventing diseases and decay.
Oral health and how it compares to your overall health:
- Gum disease is common in people with diabetes and heart disease.
- Diseases that affect the whole body, hasten the spread of gum disease due to the inability of your body to fight off infections
- Tobacco use, which is never recommended, puts you at a higher risk for more serious diseases. This is consistent with gum disease and even making it harder to treat.
Dental Hygiene is a very important part of your oral health. Minor dental check-ups and teeth cleanings vastly improve your chances of limiting gum diseases and allow you to smile like you mean it!
