Dental Health


Dental offices offer a wide range of expertise and services apart from repairing cavities and cleaning teeth, which involves the removal of plaque and tartar from the teeth. Dentists also treat infections of the mouth, gums, and jaw and perform some kinds of oral surgery. With the help of x-rays and by working in collaboration with dental hygienists and orthodontists, these oral health professionals prevent and detect the pathologies inherent in the development and lifestyle habits of their patients of all ages, from infants to seniors.

Fun Dental Facts:

  • Americans buy more than 4 million gallons of toothpaste every year.
  • 25% of adults DO NOT brush twice a day. This in creases their risk of developing tooth decay by 33%.
  • Roughly 75% of school children worldwide have active dental cavities.

Some dentists specialize in certain areas, such as root canals or the extraction of wisdom teeth, an exercise that requires precision and dexterity. Other dentists treat all types of problems, including those caused by disease. As modern equipment now allows for in-depth examinations, these professionals are often able to anticipate problems and prevent them from developing.

Indeed, since it has been proven that good oral hygiene greatly influences an individual’s general state of health, the prevention of oral diseases must be a priority. With this in mind, dentists and their colleagues make it their duty to explain the basis of dental care and to give the best possible personalized advice to their patients.

Dentists recommend once or twice yearly check-ups
