Total Health Starts with Oral Health
Our bodies are deeply connected, so it should be no surprise that dental health is linked to overall wellness. We want to help you prioritize your oral health, so you can be in better total health. There are many benefits for your complete health when you practice proper oral hygiene.
- Present an Appealing Smile and Breath—Many people with poor oral health avoid smiling or getting close to another person out of embarrassment. With good home care and regular check ups your smile and breath can be fixed. You may even get a boost of confidence when you feel comfortable sharing your smile. Your breath will be instantly better if you are following your brushing and flossing regimen. Never forget to brush your tongue because bacteria can build up there too. Adding a mouthwash to your routine could deliver an extra punch of freshness too. Ultimately, poor dental hygiene could lead to missing teeth, which will greatly impact your self-confidence and desire to smile. If you already have serious damage or missing teeth, give us a call to schedule a consultation. We would love to talk to you about our restorative options. Each patient receives a customized plan to help them overcome their dental problems and get their smile back.
- Sleep Better–If you are suffering from sleep apnea and grinding your teeth at night, taking steps to address your problem will protect your teeth and help your overall health. If you are not breathing and resting fully because of your sleep conditions, your total health will be impacted. Schedule a consultation with us to learn more about how we can help you manage your sleep apnea. Breathing and sleeping properly at night can dramatically improve your health and well-being.
- Avoid Health Issues—You may be surprised how many medical problems can be connected with or aggravated by poor oral health.Your gum health could determine if you experience tooth loss or are put at a greater risk of degenerative diseases as a result of developing periodontal disease. Without strong oral health habits, you are opening yourself up to a greater risk of gingivitis, oral cancer, cardiovascular conditions, kidney cancer, blood cancers, and pancreatic cancer. Making the choice to brush and floss properly is a beneficial step for your total health.
- Save your Money—Being in a financial crisis is not healthy for your physical, emotional, or mental well-being. If you have a weak oral health regimen, you are going down a path that will lead to expensive dental work eventually. Your teeth have a protective layer of enamel, which is intended to prevent the core of your teeth and roots from being compromised by bacteria. Without proper home care, you are allowing your enamel to be eaten away, which will likely lead to fillings, crowns, root canals, or extractions in the future. Dental repair work is far more costly than your preventative dental care. Practice good dental habits at home and keep up your routine cleanings to greatly diminish the chance of needing expensive repairs. According to the American Dental Association, you should be brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing once. Also, routine professional cleanings should be completed every six months.
