While many patients come to ORA Dentistry Spa because of its reputation as a provider of unmatched aesthetic dental care, their decision to keep regular dental appointments is likely benefiting their overall health as well.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 27, 2015
According to an article published November 13th on DrBicuspid.com, much of the conversation at the recent 2015 American Dental Association meeting in Washington D.C. revolved around the fact that proper dental care, both at-home and in the dental chair, can help protect a patient’s overall health. The talk stressed the link between periodontal disease (more commonly referred to as gum disease) and diabetes. According to Dr. Sam Saleh, the head aesthetic dentist at Ora Dentistry Spa in Beverly Hills, while many of his patients come to Ora Dentistry Spa because of his reputation as a provider of unmatched aesthetic dental care, their decision to keep regular dental appointments is likely benefiting their overall health as well.
Dr. Saleh explains that part of the problem with periodontal disease is that a large number of patients that have it do not know it. He explains that, because patients can still have gum disease even if they do not otherwise appear to be having problems, they still need to see a dentist quite regularly whether or not they are concerned about the appearance of their teeth. According to data from the American Dental Association, 47 percent of adults over the age of 30 have some form of periodontitis. Yet, as Dr. Saleh explains, this does not have to be the case. While treatment plans vary based on the patient’s current oral hygiene habits as well as with the severity of each patient’s case, the first step is always consulting with an experienced dentist.
Dr. Saleh explains that, if patients do not take this first step, they are putting themselves at risk of suffering from the related, negative health effects that the recent article (and many others in the past) has tied to periodontal disease. While this particular article talked about the increased risk of developing diabetes, Dr. Saleh notes that other studies have drawn ties between periodontal disease and other extremely serious conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer.
Dr. Saleh explains that, whether patients are scheduling an appointment to ensure a clean bill of health, or to get a beautifully designed aesthetic smile makeover, there is no better place for them to go for their care than ORA Dentistry Spa. In addition to having access to superb aesthetic and general dental care from Dr. Saleh, patients receive said care in a spa-like environment that is truly one-of-a-kind in the dental health community. With amenities ranging from massages to heated leather dental chairs, Dr. Saleh explains that his dental spa can make even the most dentist-averse patient feel comfortable and in control.
