Did You Know Your Oral Health Correlates To Your Overall Health?
Douglas Hamill DDS as well as his hygienists have over 20 years of experience helping patients of all ages maintain and improve their oral health. Recently, we have noticed an increase in people being concerned about the correlation of oral health to your overall health. People are finally starting to realize keeping your teeth clean and germ free is related to your heart health. In years past, the heart was never mentioned in relation to your teeth or oral health but due to recent studies, these connections have been observed.
We have noticed that people are getting health checkups on a much more on a regular basis, and when they do go to their doctor, they are being asked, “Are you seeing your dentist on a regular basis?” This is because poor dental health has been shown to increase the risk of bacterial infection in your body and your blood stream. This can affect your heart valves and have a negative impact on your heart. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day may lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases as suggested by The American Heart Association. If you have concerns about your oral health and whether it may be contributing to poor overall health, schedule a free consultation with our dentist in Williamsville and let us help you get the answers you need to make an informed decision about your health.
Why Is It Important To Maintain Your Regular Dental Check-Ups?
You should see a dentist even if your teeth feel fine because you may not be aware of an underlying issue that we can help identify using the latest dental technology. If you are due for x-rays, we can locate tooth decay, cavities on the teeth, and other conditions that can be dealt with early on, before they become much bigger issues down the line. I have found that people who miss their appointment or do not want x-rays, will often end up with a much bigger problem in the future. Oftentimes these problems include needing a root canal or an extraction. Preventative care is why you go to the dentist even if you feel fine.
When you visit the dentist and have your teeth cleaned, and x-rays performed, it’s a relieving feeling to know that you are healthy and doing everything you can to ensure your optimal oral health. And remember, attending your regular dental check-ups and having routine cleanings can save you money in the future by preventing the need for more serious and invasive dental procedures. If you would like to schedule a cleaning and checkup with an experienced dentist in Williamsville, contact us today.
How Often Should You See Your Dentist?
For pediatric patients, we recommend being seen as early as their parents are comfortable with, but the ADA recommends visiting the dentist by your child’s first birthday, or six months after their first tooth becomes visible, whichever comes first. When children come in at that age, we focus our examination more so on the inside of the mouth, not so much the teeth. Dental disease is the most common chronic disease in children and our goal is to help educate their parents and improve the child’s oral health.
We always try to get young patients used to the dentist before there is a problem. For adults, you should come in at least every six months for routine cleanings and check-ups, and should be making your follow up appointments before you leave the office. Life is very fast, and everyone has so many things on their agendas, so it’s nice to have an appointment set up in advance, especially during COVID when there is so much uncertainty. We are happy to accommodate evening appointments, early appointments, and lunch hour appointments to make it convenient for those with busy schedules.
