The mouth is often treated separate from the rest of the body and science is just beginning to gain a better understanding of the link between oral and overall health. Systemic conditions, medication, stress, habits, nutrition, and lifestyle can all increase your susceptibility to dental disease, and this can in-turn can affect overall health and well-being.
Prevention is key! In addition to completing a clinical assessment of the teeth and gums, we use a phase contrast microscope and saliva pH testing. Our goal is to identify all factors that can increase an individual's risk of dental disease so we can personalize a care plan to help you achieve and maintain oral health for life.
