The Importance of Your General Dentist
Dentists offer a variety of services, from fixing broken teeth to treating sleep apnea and migraine headaches, but the center of most dental practices in Cincinnati is in general dentistry services. We encourage our patients to share this focus by putting regular, twice-a-year checkups at the center of their relationship with their dentist.
Though the connection isn’t entirely understood, studies have repeatedly found that people who have gum disease are also more likely to have:
- Heart disease
- Heart attacks
- Premature births
- Rheumatoid arthritis
This shows how important dental health can be to your overall health, and why you need to keep your teeth and gums free of decay. A general dentist can help with this, both by cleaning your teeth twice a year (a critical part of maintaining your dental health) and by recommending changes to your dental habits to improve your daily maintenance.
While complex and invasive dental procedures exist that can fix many problems with oral health, dentistry should be thought of as a preventative profession above all else. At Hardin Advanced Dentistry, our staff and dentists all take the prevention of tooth decay and regular oral cleanings as one of the most important parts of our job, and we hope that you take your oral health seriously too.
