Proper dental care is important for the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth, but it’s also important for maintaining your overall health as well. Tooth decay, tooth infections, and gum disease have all been linked to an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and strokes.
A good oral hygiene routine should include brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing at least once a day, and visiting PeakView Dentistry every 6 months for a dental cleaning and exam. Caring for your dental health can help you care for your overall health.
Importance Of Dental Cleanings & Exams
Below are just a few of the important reasons you should schedule regular dental checkups:
- Maintaining Dental Health – Regularly visiting our office will allow Dr. Bahar Esmaili to keep track of your oral health. This will also allow him to compare your X-rays with previous ones to detect any changes or potential problems. If we detect anything out of the ordinary, we can diagnose and treat the problem early on when it’s less costly and painful.
- Preventing Gum Disease – If plaque and tartar are left to accumulate on the gums, they can cause irritation and eventual infection of the gum tissue. This infection is known as gum disease and if left untreated, gum disease can cause bone loss in the jaw, which can allow the teeth to loosen and even fall out.
- Cancer Detection – Every dental checkup at PeakView Dentistry is accompanied by a cancer screening. Dr. Esmaili will screen the mouth for any signs of oral cancer. If caught early enough, the prognosis for oral cancer is improved.
- Improving Confidence – A healthy and beautiful smile can go a long way to helping improve self-esteem and confidence. We want you to be proud of your smile, and visiting our office regularly can help you achieve this.
In addition to your daily oral hygiene routine, making and keeping regular dental appointments can help you achieve and maintain the beautiful and healthy smile you’ve always dreamed of.
