Good For Teeth, Good For Overall Health

added on: March 20, 2014 | By: Dr. Nancy Tobin

What you eat may affect not only your oral health, it may also similarly influence the health of your entire body. Researchers have been looking at the so-called “fermentable carbohydrates” that form the foundation of the modern diet. Dentists have been telling us for years that sugars and starchy foods increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. These same foods are also likely linked to the development of chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Thus, tooth decay and bleeding gums may raise a red flag that a patient may be at risk for other chronic health problems.

What is good for the teeth and gums is also good for the rest of the body, Diet and nutrition are important environmental factors affecting oral health diseases such as dental caries and periodontal disease. The best time to see your dentist is before you have a problem. The most valuable service we can provide is a thorough and complete examination. Virtually all dental problems- decay, gum disease, jaw joint difficulties and loose teeth- are easily detected in their early stages and can be treated economically and comfortably at that time. We’re currently accepting new patients. Please call us to schedule an appointment. We provide comprehensive care, prevention, and maintenance for a lifetime of smiles. Our welcoming and modern office focuses on each individual patient, attention to detail, and a passion for excellence.

We offer a complete selection of procedures, from simple whitening to total smile makeovers. We can give you a smile you’ll be proud to show.
