Comprehensive Dentistry For Health
Comprehensive dentistry gets to the root before the root becomes a problem.
You don’t have to be a scientist to understand that your teeth and gums are a huge factor when it comes to overall health. In fact, some believe that gum disease is the culprit.
Sturm & Associates is the comprehensive dental practice you can depend on. That means taking care of problems before they get worse.
The goal of comprehensive dentistry is to be problem free from the moment the first tooth erupts.
What is Comprehensive Dentistry?
Comprehensive dentistry means you won’t have to deal with tooth decay and gum disease.
When practiced by both the dentist in Yorkville and the patient, you and your family can be cavity and gingivitis free.
It may seem hard to believe, but people who practice good oral hygiene are less likely to suffer through unnecessary root canal therapy or extraction.
That’s right. Because your dentist in Toronto practices comprehensive dentistry, you will be the first to know if a small cavity or anything else is detected.
Comprehensive dentistry is about teaching your family how to take care of teeth and gums as well. By providing a good example your kids will be on the right path when it comes to oral and overall health.
If you haven’t shown your dentist how you brush do so at your next appointment. You certainly don’t have to be embarrassed if you aren’t angling your toothbrush the right way.
You may find it hard to believe, but research shows that brushing for 2 minutes is the best way to brush those germs and bacteria away.
Other Tips from Sturm & Associates Include:
- Flossing When Needed
- Enjoying Lots of Water
- Avoiding Sugary and Sticky Foods
- Eating a Diet full of Vitamin D and Calcium
- Regular Dental Checkups
- Annual Comprehensive Exams
Of course, your twice yearly dental checkups and annual comprehensive exams may be more often. This is especially true if you are a diabetic or someone who suffers from another systemic disease.
People with diabetes are more prone to gum disease as are people with heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
