Why get regular cleanings and check-ups?

Good oral hygiene is an important factor in achieving a healthier lifestyle. Eating a balanced diet, brushing and flossing daily, and regular dental checkups help prevent periodontal disease and maintain your overall health.

Research indicates links between the bacteria causing gum disease and systemic diseases like heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and premature birth.  Keeping gum disease in check is essential to your general medical health. In addition to examining and cleaning your teeth at your recall visits, you will be screened for oral cancer.

Keeping a healthy smile as you get older isn’t just for good looks. It keeps you on the road to optimum health.
