Commenting on a recent article detailing the newest study on the possible link between increased cancer risks in individuals with poor oral hygiene, Dr. Feiz, head dentist at the Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care, notes that daily healthy dental practices are more important than ever before.

Proper oral hygiene has many health benefits.

Dr. Feiz notes that their practice is based on providing their patients with the highest level of dental care while performing every procedure with very minimal discomfort.

An article published June 8 on AOL News describes the studies being conducted that may expose a possible link between head and neck cancer in individuals with unhealthy oral hygiene habits. The article goes on to state that the individuals participating in the study were evaluated based on whether they had gum disease, brushed their teeth on a daily basis, wore dentures and if they visited a dentist at least once a year. Dr. Farzad Feiz notes that, although practicing proper oral hygiene may possibly reduce an individual’s risk for head and neck cancer, it is also important to note that it can also save the individual from a variety of other well-known and important dental diseases and conditions.

Gingivitis - The first sign of major gum disease in a patient is known as gingivitis. A patient’s gums are visibly red, swollen and even bleed. Gingivitis is most commonly caused by poor oral hygiene habits. Dr. Feiz and his team note that this early stage of gum disease can be remedied by flossing, brushing and keeping up with yearly dental visits. Often, a deep cleaning from an experienced dental professional may be called for. With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Feiz utilizes his expert knowledge to efficiently diagnose and treat a patient with gingivitis.

Halitosis - Halitosis (bad breath) occurs when a patient’s mouth contains too much bacteria and causes the all-too familiar foul odor we all know. Dr. Feiz and his team at the Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care understand that this condition often discourages individuals from being social. That’s why the team of highly qualified and experienced dentists at Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care make sure to not only repair a patient’s oral health, but they also offer cosmetic and restorative procedures that can help restore a patient’s confidence by fostering both sweeter breath and a better smile.

Tooth Decay - A patient will experience tooth decay when plaque and bacteria in the mouth wear down the tooth, and advanced cases can cause pain and/or sensitivity. With this in mind, the highly skilled team at Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care note that they use the most gentle approach to repairing decayed teeth by performing procedures such as tooth bonding, placing dental crowns and many other procedures that are recommended for each patient. Dr. Feiz notes that their practice is based on providing their patients with the highest level of dental care while performing every procedure with very minimal discomfort.
