Dental Hygiene and Periodontal Health 

Excellent oral hygiene impacts not only your smile, but your overall bodily health as well. There are several health conditions that are affected directly by oral hygiene, including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. There is also a correlation between good oral health and having a healthy full-term pregnancy.

Bacteria that live in your mouth can cause plaque, tartar, and gum disease. These bacteria contribute not only to the health of your entire body, but to your breath, the appearance of your smile, and the healthy function of your intestinal tract. Keeping all these bacteria in check with the help of our dental healthcare professionals is not just important – it is vital to your well-being.

Homecare and oral hygiene are very crucial to your overall oral health. When you floss and brush, you are removing a majority of debris and harmful bacteria from the oral cavity. However, even for those of us with impeccable habits, we still leave behind some debris that eventually forms plaque. When visiting our office periodically, our team of hygienists will remove any plaque and restore your tissue back to good health. If regular visits are missed, plaque eventually destroys your periodontal tissue. This causes your gums and bone to recede and eventually may lead to gingivitis and periodontitis.

The stability of your supporting tissue determines the stability of your overall teeth. Keeping your oral health in good standing will impact your overall health positively and allow you to smile confidently.
