If we were to describe the perfect dental-health lifestyle to recommend to our patients included would be:
- Eating healthy foods
- Drinking plenty of water
- Staying physically fit
- Having your teeth professionally cleaned and examined regularly
- Daily hygiene habits of brushing and flossing
- Being tobacco-free
Taking care of your mouth not only helps with your overall health, but with regular exams, we can detect early signs of tooth decay. If decay worsens, so will the complexity of the treatment to repair the damage to the tooth. The end result could be tooth loss, which is likely to be accompanied by serious pain as the nerves are attacked. Our staff does not want anyone to experience pain or discomfort, so make your appointment for your exam and keep up your healthy habits!
