Maintaining Healthy Smiles
A healthy body includes a healthy smile, which is why we focus on the overall health of your mouth. Every visit includes preventative maintenance to watch for signs of tooth decay or gum disease. Every exam includes an oral cancer screening, as well as complete health history assessment to understand your family history and lifestyle to assess your risk factors for any oral health-related concerns. We’re always happy to share our wisdom and knowledge and give you customized tips on how to have a healthy mouth.
Healthy smiles come from healthy gums, so it’s important to take care of your gums as much as your teeth. Periodontal (gum) disease is an avoidable infection that can be caused by a number of issues such as plaque buildup, tobacco use, and even the use of certain types of medication.
