Dental Health and a Healthy Life
Your smile reflects not just your mood but also your general health. Good dental habits are some of the easiest ways to manage your health and reduce your risk of certain complications that are associated with poor dental health. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily and visiting our dentist in Northridge work together to form the foundation of good dental health.
Other day-to-day habits also play a role in oral and overall health. Your daily diet should include all the necessary nutrients to energize you and keep your body functioning properly. It should also be limited in tooth-damaging foods, such as processed starches, sugary treats and acidic coffee and soft drinks that can erode enamel.
Researchers have identified links between poor dental health and potentially serious problems, including heart attacks, strokes and respiratory infections. Leading-edge dental treatments and techniques can help you reduce your risk of gum disease, tooth decay and other oral health problems. We offer comprehensive dental care that can effectively treat the early stages of dental disease as well as more advanced stages and can restore your smile to health.
Learning good dental health habits starts early. Children should have a full evaluation once their teeth begin to erupt and no later than 12 months. Checkups should continue every six months or more frequently as needed. These checkups allow us to monitor your smile, make personalized recommendations and clean away any potentially dangerous buildup. Contact us today to learn more or to schedule your next appointment.
