At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, we are dedicated to the dental health of each patient, and recognize that healthy teeth and gums are essential to complete physical and mental health.
At every checkup, we examine you for any new cavities, and for any signs of gum disease. In its mildest form, gum disease is known as gingivitis and is easily treated. Stepping up your dental care routine at home is often enough to get it under control.
In view of that, we really stress the importance of daily brushing and flossing. You should do it at least twice a day. Just before bedtime is especially important, because it cleans out the germs and plaque that build up during the course of the day.
By now, the link between your dental and your overall health is well-established. Poor dental hygiene can, over the years, actually put you at greater risk of the following:
- Heart attack
You may wonder: why does my mouth have so much to do with my overall health? If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the mouth is a window to the rest of your body.
At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, we want all our patients to have good dental health. We offer restorative dentistry, and a wide range of general and family dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today.
