The Importance of Good Oral Health
Oral health is an important factor for your overall health. Medical research has found several links between common oral infections and serious health conditions like cardiovascular disease. By maintaining the health of your teeth and gums, you are also boosting your body’s general health.
Good oral hygiene should begin in childhood, so it is important for parents to promote brushing and flossing habits early. Likewise, dentist appointments should start early. Toddlers should evaluated for early signs of tooth decay and become familiar with the place where important preventive services will be performed throughout their life. Every stage of life includes its own specific oral health concerns; our dental team is trained to address all of the common issues seen in children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly.
