Importance of General Dentistry
Examining and cleaning your teeth and gums is important in preventing future problems, and addressing issues that may be affecting your dental health. Studies link several diseases and illnesses to poor oral hygiene. Many dentists take a holistic approach to dentistry, which looks at your overall health. It is important to keep your routine exam every six-months, and to pay attention to any changes in your teeth and gums in between these in-office cleanings. In addition, you may want to correct something that is bothering you about your smile, such as a broken tooth or gaps in your teeth. These are procedures best addressed by cosmetic dentistry. However, a good cosmetic dentist will examine you to be sure your teeth and gums are healthy prior to moving on to procedures to give you a dazzling smile.
