Many people tend to neglect oral hygiene, not knowing that is actually related to the overall health and wellbeing of the whole body. Infected teeth and gums can render patients incapable of eating properly which can lead to malnourishment and deficiencies. Untreated infections can potentially become more aggressive, irreversible diseases that can destroy the teeth, surrounding soft tissues, and even the underlying bone. For all these reasons and more, it is essential to keep your oral health in check, and to have it professionally evaluated at least twice a year.
We at Dr Viken Garabedian DDS believe in educating patients regarding the importance of oral hygiene, and how it can effectively be maintained at home. With a hygiene routine in place, and regular checkups with your dentist, there is no reason why you would ever have to worry about oral infections. At our clinic, we use a number of different tools to enlighten our patients about the correct techniques for more effective brushing and flossing, along with information on different kinds of food groups to steer clear of for optimal oral health. Remember, prevention is better than cure. If you wish to learn more about oral hygiene and how it affects your entire body, simply give us a call today and we’d be happy to help you out.
