Comprehensive Cleanings and Exams
Thorough exams and preventive dentistry are the foundation of good oral health and so much more. During your exam, we will listen to your description of your health and determine whether you might have any other health problems that could be related to the state of your mouth and jaw.
People don’t usually associate TMJ symptoms like headaches and ear problems with their oral health, but they’re often connected and often reflect oral symptoms like worn, chipped, or broken teeth and jaw pain.
And if you’re struggling to adapt to CPAP for sleep apnea, you might not realize that there’s a dental treatment option that might be more comfortable and convenient for you.
No Smile Is Hopeless
In our practice, we have known many patients who had given up all hope of ever having a healthy, attractive smile.
But where there’s life, there’s hope, and no matter what the current state of your teeth, they can be fixed. Cavities can be filled. Infected teeth can be treated. Receding gums can be restored to a healthy position. Even missing teeth can be replaced.
Mercury is a known toxin. The world is trying to phase out the use of mercury for any industrial purpose, including dental fillings. We are well ahead of the pack on this one, as we do not use any mercury in our dental practice. We can even remove fillings that contain mercury.
Instead of mercury, we use a combination of resin (plastic) fillings and advanced ceramic restorations. These are not only more cosmetic, they don’t contain toxins that impact your mind, your body, and our environment.
The Holistic Mouth-Body Connection
Your oral health is intimately related with the health of your entire body. A chronic gum disease infection allows bacteria to grow and spread throughout your body. It contributes to chronic inflammation of the body and has been linked to a number of illnesses, including congestive heart failure, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and pregnancy complications.
Having healthy teeth or effectively replacing lost teeth with dental implants can help ensure your health as you get older. Having more teeth and being able to chew effectively can help prevent dementia. It also ensures that you can eat a wider range of foods, so you get more nutrition and stay healthier.
