The importance of good oral hygiene is often overlooked. Did you know that poor oral hygiene can lead to more than just dental problems, but medical problems as well?
That’s why at The DC Dentist we look at each patient’s overall health and well-being. We work in conjunction with your Medical Doctor to provide you with the best care possible. Having a regular checkup not only helps to prevent problems but provides you with good oral hygiene.
1. Prevention of Oral Cancer
Everyone who comes in for a cleaning receives a free oral cancer screening, automatically. We provide great preventive care.
2. Help avoid Gum Disease
Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing and using a mouth rinse will help to maintain your teeth. However, a dental cleaning every 6 months with proper oral maintenance will help prevent gum disease. Having our Hygienist work with you will help to detect any infection in your gums or bones. If gum disease is diagnosed early we can help to treat and reduce the effects. If left untreated it could get worse and lead to loss of teeth. Gum disease is preventable!
3. Have good health
Having clean teeth is a team effort. Poor hygiene habits can lead to problems like gum disease, bone loss, infections, heart disease, etc. Treating Gum Disease will help with diabetes, hypertension and heart disease and keep your overall body healthy.
4. Maintain your natural teeth
Did you know having your own teeth in your mouth prolongs your life for at least 10 years? One leading reason adult’s loose teeth are due to gum disease. Having teeth keeps your digestive track in order, allowing you to chew and digest your food properly.
5. Early detection of problems
If your arm or leg bled every time you washed your body you probably would not wait to see the Doctor. The same goes for your gums. If they bleed every time you brush or floss or while chewing you should see the Dentist. Don’t wait for matters to get worse, see the Dentist regularly to avoid extensive problems later. Treating cavities, broken teeth, and gum disease early will help prevent extended and expensive damage later
6. Have good Oral Hygiene
If it happens that you fall off track our Hygienist can get you back on track to good oral health. Working together we can help you have a bright smile. If you have persistent bad breath it could be you have a dental problem which we can detect in our office. Being consistent with your check ups and instructed home routine will lead to good oral health.
