Did you know the condition of your dental health affects the health of the rest of your body? Research has suggested a strong link between periodontal disease (gum) and coronary artery disease, pre-term births, and low birth weight babies. Also periodontal disease and diabetes run hand in hand. Our office believes in treating the whole patient, not only their mouth. We do periodontal exams, update your health history for any changes, and an oral cancer exam is performed at each hygiene appointment. We listen to your concerns. A comprehensive exam allows us to devise the appropriate treatment plan for your needs and wants.
