Keeping plaque and cavities at bay is half of the battle when it comes to having a bright, beautiful smile. 

However, did you know that preventative dentistry could save your life?

The connection between our dental health and our overall body health has been proven. Decades of scientific research have connected periodontal (gum) disease with other diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attacks, stroke, kidney and lung disease, dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

"The mouth can become a source of disease or pathological processes affecting other parts of the body," former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher wrote in his report in 2000. In fact, all of the United States surgeon generals have acknowledged the connection in their reports on Oral Health in America, published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, since 1996.

There are more than 500 strains of bacteria in the film that forms on your teeth - dental biofilm, which is plaque that forms on the surfaces of your teeth. These bacteria only go away with proper daily cleaning and professional care. If the plaque is not cleaned away regularly, bacteria can grow and get into the infected gum tissue. From there, it can migrate throughout the blood stream, attacking every tissue in the body.

"Awesome experience. Never thought I'd say that about a dentist office! I highly recommend them. They are located over an hour away from my home town but I will make the trip!"
