Give your teeth a spring cleaning | Dentist in Grand Prairie, Alberta
This time of year, you may be thinking of cleaning and reorganizing your home, office, and garage. Perhaps you’re doing a purge- hauling out big garbage filled with things that have been cluttering your home. Once you’re done cleaning, you probably feel lighter and more organized, and your space will have a refreshed feeling.
We would encourage you to come in for a cleaning and oral exam as part of your “spring cleaning.” We know that life gets busy, and often your oral health is the first thing to get put on the back burner. However, your oral health can have an impact on your overall health, so much so that the mouth can be referred to as the “gateway to your health.” You may think that doing a great job of brushing and flossing is enough, but unfortunately, no matter how consistent and thorough you are with your oral hygiene routine, plaque and tartar can build up. If left untreated long enough, this buildup can lead to gum disease. Gum disease will not only affect the gums, teeth and surrounding tissues, it has also been linked to an increased risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and low birth weight for babies of pregnant mothers. This is not to alarm you, just to encourage you take proactive steps to better your oral health in order to prevent complications from arising.
Coming in for a cleaning is so much more than just polishing your teeth for a whiter and brighter smile. Upon your first visit at Boisson Dental Group, the dentist will give you a thorough and complete oral exam. This will include digital x-rays and screening for oral cancer. The dentist will also evaluate you for gum disease, check for cavities, and ensure that any pre -existing fillings or implants are secure. This also provides a great opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you may have with your dentist. Your dentist can also give you valuable tips and advice on maintaining your oral hygiene at home. During this time, you can also pre-book your next cleaning to remind you to come in again in about six months.
