Oral Health And Wellness
A healthy mouth helps to protect your overall wellness! As a contributing factor in your overall health, a healthy mouth will help keep you feeling and looking younger, longer. Dr. Flax is the dentist in Atlanta, Georgia who can help you preserve optimum oral wellness.
A healthier mouth means a healthier you
Science-based evidence confirms that your oral health is connected to many other health conditions. The mouth is a normal and natural breeding ground for bacteria. If left unattended, harmful bacteria can grow out of control and lead to gum disease, which in turn releases bacteria into your bloodstream.
This may trigger many other problems in the body such as:
- Heart Disease
- Lower Birth Weight
- Premature Babies
- Oral Cancer
You can lower your risk for these health issues with regular oral care and biannual teeth cleanings. At our practice, we take a holistic approach to general dentistry and focus our efforts on keeping you and your smile healthy. We educate our patients on the importance of great oral care and the impact it can have on an individual’s overall health.
Trust your smile to our expert, Dr. Flax.
Prevent Health Issues With Regular Dental Care
When we perform general dentistry treatments, we aren’t just protecting your smile. With each teeth cleaning and cavity filled, we help patients lower their risk and stay well. Teeth cleanings get rid of harmful bacteria that can’t be easily removed with brushing and flossing and having cavities filled keeps your teeth from decaying.
You can control bacteria and keep your gums healthy with brushing, flossing and regular dental visits. In addition, good oral care protects natural tooth structure by preserving the bone around your teeth, keeping your teeth strong and preventing unnecessary tooth loss.
