Aesthetic Family Dental encourages patients to make their dental health a priority. Poor dental health often leads to pain and issues within the mouth, but the impacts can have implications far beyond the mouth and teeth. The mouth is a breeding ground for bacteria, which can cause a variety of issues if it goes unchecked. Daily brushing and flossing may seem like enough, but optimal oral health is best achieved through regular visits with dental professionals. Most oral hygiene issues start small and are unnoticeable to an untrained eye. Over time problems become magnified and lead to the need for more extensive dental work.

Poor oral hygiene historically has been suspected of causing greater health issues, and more recently has been linked to heart disease, women having pre-term babies with low birth weight, and new studies show links to Alzheimer’s disease, according to the British Dental Health Foundation (http://www.dentalhealth.org). An inherent fear of the dentist, rising healthcare costs, and busy schedules prevent many people from seeking routine and preventative dental care, but dentists urge people not to underestimate the importance of a healthy mouth. In addition, dental problems can cause cosmetic issues which can impact self-esteem and mental health. Overall health and oral hygiene go hand in hand, as medical issues also compromise oral health, like diabetes making certain people more susceptible to oral health problems.

Much like eating balanced meals and exercising, proper dental care and hygiene should be part of a healthy lifestyle. The best dentists Gilbert families rely on for their oral healthcare are Drs. Wallin of Greding of Aesthetic Family Dental, who offer residents oral care plans to maintain ideal health.
