General Dentistry (Preventative)
General Dentistry Facts:
For instance, periodontal disease (a.k.a. gum disease) has been linked to heart disease, stroke, respiratory problems, dementia and Alzheimer’s, diabetes complications, and low birth weight. In addition, oral cancer claims 7500 lives annually. Treating gum disease and oral cancer early yields the best outcome – it could save your smile and your life. Furthermore, strong teeth and healthy gums will allow you to eat a nutritious diet, smile with confidence, and enjoy comfortable oral function for the long term.
General Dentistry Recommendations
We recommend six-month checkups and professional cleaning for every patient, and we treat patients of all ages.
