Why is dental hygiene important?
Your smile was designed to last a lifetime, but certain conditions can impact the longevity of the teeth. This includes damage, poor oral health, periodontal disease, and cavities. When a patient has good oral health habits at home, they can keep many of these problems from arising, saving time, and maintaining their natural teeth. However, if issues arise over the course of the years, patients will need to work with a dentist to repair their smile. In some situations, this also means replacing missing or extracted natural adult teeth.
Conditions such as periodontal disease has also been linked to many medical conditions including heart disease and diabetes. It can significantly increase one’s risk of having a stroke as well. This is because periodontal disease is an infection. Bacteria in the mouth can travel through the bloodstream and to other parts of the body, spreading infection and inflammation throughout. To address this, patients will first need to address their periodontal disease, which is often done with antibiotics and more routine cleanings and treatments.

- A healthier smile
