Preventive Oral Health Care
Oral diseases, from tooth decay to gum disease and oral cancer, cause significant pain and hardship for many adults and children. In fact, one in four American adults still has untreated tooth decay.
Cavities (tooth decay) is still one of the most common health problems of children in the United States. Almost half of children 11 years and under have cavities.
Taking good care of you teeth and gums isn’t just about preventing cavities or bad breath. The mouth is a window into the health of your body. Daily cleanings are important to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
Regularly scheduled visits to your dentist is just as important. While you may be brushing your teeth and cleaning between your teeth every day, your smile and your overall health deserves a regular professional cleaning at the dentist office to prevent future problems and catch existing decay before it becomes a bigger health issue.
