At New Teeth Dental Solutions, we believe in the importance of proper dental care and hygiene to the development of total health and wellness. This means our office in Houston focuses on preventive and restorative treatments designed to improve oral health and help reduce your likelihood of developing more serious issues.
Numerous studies conducted in the last two decades indicate poor oral hygiene can drastically increase an individual’s risk of developing health concerns like high blood pressure and heart disease. It can also increase the possibility of developing bacterial lung infections from bacteria traveling from the mouth to the respiratory system. There is even a relationship between plaque on the teeth and diabetes.
To help reduce your risk of these conditions, it is important to get regular oral healthcare and to engage in good habits. One of the best things you can do is brush and floss your teeth twice a day to remove plaque and bacteria. This helps reduce how much is ingested.
Receiving professional preventive treatments can also improve overall health and wellness by eliminating plaque and bacteria you can’t reach with your toothbrush. Regular exams also allow us to discover signs of disease you might not notice, such as lumps in the mouth, bloodless gums, or oral bleeding.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends each individual visit the dentist twice a year for exams and cleanings, and we agree. This allows you to build a relationship with us and to keep track of your own health.
Besides regular care, we also provide education and information. We can teach you about which habits to avoid and what you can do to keep yourself healthy. Proper education should begin at a young age, and we are willing to work with patients of all ages and backgrounds. We can also answer any questions you might have.
