Regular dental visits will help keep your teeth and gums healthy, which will help with your overall health. Research has shown that there is a correlation between poor dental health and other serious health issues such as stroke, heart disease, diabetes and premature births in women.
During your regular dental exam, your dentist and hygienist will look closely for any signs of problems in your oral health. Early detection of problems such as oral cancer, cavities, and gum disease can mean a better long term prognosis and the best way to maintain good oral health.
Most dentists recommend dental exams once every six months however your dentist may recommend more frequent dental care visits if you are a tobacco or alcohol user, diabetic, pregnant, or have gum disease. The professionals at Axiom Dentistry will customize your dental visits to best suit your dental needs.
