While it may seem small in comparison to the rest of your body, your mouth plays an important role in your overall health. Poor oral hygiene and dental health can contribute to conditions like diabetes and heart disease. Your dentist can perform restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures to help you regain the health and beauty of your smile.
- Regular professional teeth cleanings can keep more than just your mouth healthy. This article from the Huffington Post explores the mouth-body connection and the research that suggests teeth cleanings can reduce one’s risk for heart attack and stroke.
- While dental veneers provide a cosmetic improvement to your smile, they can also help to protect your teeth from damage. By placing thin, porcelain shells over damaged teeth, your cosmetic dentist can help you achieve not only a straight and seamless smile but also an aligned bite, which is important to bone and jaw health.
- Often taken during a dental exam, dental x-rays help your dentist to diagnose unseen problems in your mouth, jaw, and of decay. Read more about how dental x-rays are used with this oral health guide from Colgate.
