18 Jan New Year’s Resolutions
SYSTEMIC HEALTH AND ORAL DISEASE
New Year, New me! We all make those New Year’s resolutions to exercise more, eat healthier, and take care of our bodies a little bit better. Did you realize that meant taking care of your teeth as well?
The more we learn about the human body the more we understand the symbiotic relationship between good oral health and an overall healthy body. Research shows the close relationship between oral health and our systemic health. Our dental team is focused to recognize and treat the oral conditions that can compromise your general health. Many of the bacteria that live in our mouth can spread to various parts of the body causing serious complications.
Early recognition and treatment of dental problems can minimize your risk of complicated conditions that require hospitalization. We frequently treat patients who have advanced gum and bone infections with a dental laser and a new patented procedure. Currently, we are the only dental team in the St. Louis area offering this new soft tissue laser technology.
We treat patients with special needs and also provide routine dental care to keep your mouth and teeth healthy and functional for a life time. We invite you to schedule a consultation for evaluation. We look forward to helping you fulfill that resolution for a better you!
