Health and Prevention
By improving your oral health, you will be improving your overall health and quality of life. The state of your mouth, and related structures, impact on your overall health and well being. You will have better general health and enjoy life more when your mouth is comfortable and free of pain and infection, you are able to chew and speak properly, and you can smile with confidence.
We believe in the long-term benefits of regular preventive care. Brushing, flossing, and regular professional cleanings are essential. In addition, we try to encourage our patients to lead a balanced life, exercise regularly, eat healthy foods, consume alcohol in moderation, and get adequate sleep. Most important to those patients who are smokers, we recommend that they quit.
