Cosmetic dentistry is one of the fastest growing trends in healthcare today. Patients are realizing that they no longer have to live with unsightly gaps, missing teeth, stained teeth, or dark silver mercury fillings.
The advancements in dentistry in the past decades have nearly eliminated the use of metal of any kind in restoring teeth. Instead, patients can expect natural, tooth colored restorations, smooth, white porcelain veneers (they do not stain!) porcelain crowns, and more beautiful end results that will last for many years to come.
Oral health=overall health
The mouth is an entry way into the body; oral problems can lead to other serious issues or diseases involving the heart, brain, bones, and blood pressure. This is why it is important to have healthy hygiene habits such as brushing and flossing daily and seeing the dentist at least every six months.
Anyone who is prone to certain risks and diseases should be getting routine dental checkups every three to four months.
Some High-Risk Patients May Include:
- Pregnant women
- Gum disease patients
- Patients who have a weak immune response to bacterial infections
- Patients who get cavities or plaque build-up often
All it takes are regular checkups at the dental office and healthy hygiene habits to prevent some serious health issues. Don’t wait, call today to schedule your cleaning and check up!
