Patients are encouraged to have routine teeth cleanings to promote a healthy mouth and body.
Routine dental cleanings help to reduce plaque and tartar build-up, keeping the teeth and gums healthy. Teeth cleanings are the cornerstone of any lasting healthy smile.
Teeth cleanings performed by your dental hygienist reach areas that brushing and flossing can not. It also focus on thoroughly cleaning the gums and soft tissues. Patients who visit the dentist on a routine basis are less likely to develop tooth decay, gum disease, and other health concerns.
Oral health is closely connected to full body health. Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease can contribute to many health concerns. Chronic inflammation in your gums can contribute to cardiovascular disease, memory problems, low birth weight in babies and even affect blood sugar levels in diabetics.
At Skyline Family Dentistry, we have implemented a new program to help our patients get healthier mouths called The Dental Fitness Program. The Dental Fitness Program focuses on 3 aspects of oral health: Gum health, Tooth health and Occlusal health. Your hygienist will help track plaque and bleeding levels and will give you personalized feedback and information on how to improve your oral health.
Patients who pass our Dental Fitness Program need less dental work, fewer cleanings and see a significant improvement in their overall health!
