Oral health can result in a healthier, happier, longer living individual. There is more research daily proving quantifiable evidence that complete oral health results in lower risk for systemic symptoms and diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and pregnancies resulting in low birth weight births. Ensuring you have two annual cleanings can significantly reduce and sometimes eliminate a greater risk for systemic diseases and symptoms.

Dentist and Hygienist can detect diseases manifesting in the mouth and leading to greater systemic issues and deficiencies. It is important that you discuss with your dental team any changes to your health history including your family history and any current medications you may be taking. Over 80% of the population has some form of periodontal (gum) disease and it is important to identify these symptoms early in order to effectively treat these conditions and prevent further damage to your teeth, gums and overall health. At each cleaning your hygienist will review your health history changes and the dentist will perform a visual oral cancer screening. Our team will also offer you the opportunity to take an advanced elective Oral Cancer Screening exam to aid the doctor in diagnosing any lesions or symptoms that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Speaking with your dental team openly about any oral health symptoms and concerns along with two annual cleanings can help save your life.
