As we near the end of January, our team at Perfect Smiles wants to continue our focus in this month’s blog on improving your dental health in 2019.
Today, we want to shed some light on the important connection between your mouth and your body, how you can’t have one without the other, and two specific benefits of focusing on oral systemic healthcare in our Seekonk, MA and Westport, MA dental offices!
Oral Systemic Healthcare Matters
Study after study proves the connection between your oral and overall health. Any problems going on with your teeth and gums won’t stay isolated inside your mouth. Gum disease, for instance, is linked to increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and even chronic depression.
That’s why our team at Perfect Smiles is committed to helping you stay ahead of oral health issues with advanced, comprehensive dental care.
Here are two specific benefits of this approach:
*Keep Your Mouth & Your Body Healthy*
Your routine dental cleanings and exams are incredibly important to your oral systemic health because it helps us catch developing problems inside your mouth early, as well as prevent many of them from happening.
Letting tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease go unchecked puts your overall health at risk because, although these problems begin in your mouth, they can cause the spread of infection and inflammation throughout the rest of your body.
We focus on oral systemic healthcare to keep that from happening to you with general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services like:
*Deep cleanings and thorough exams
*Scaling and root planing to manage gum disease
*Dental fillings and same-day crowns to repair damaged and decayed teeth
*Orthodontics to correct crowded, crooked teeth or bite problems that wear teeth down
Maintaining a healthy body takes a proactive, comprehensive approach to your dental care, and that’s what you get at Perfect Smiles!
*Improve Your Quality Of Life*
Tooth loss not only robs you of comfortable oral function and confidence about your smile, but it compromises your jawbone and gum health. Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants, however, preserves your oral health, your youthful-looking smile, and thus, your quality of life.
That’s because dental implants fuse together with your jawbone, encourage new bone growth, and maintains the strength and structural stability of your overall facial appearance and replacement teeth.
