At Broadway Dental, we love seeing you! The American Dental Association recommends that you see your dentist at least twice a year for preventive care. By checking your mouth every six months, we can often reduce your potential for larger dental problems.
At your checkup, we’ll inspect your soft tissue for oral cancer and periodontal disease. We’ll assess problems like tooth decay, cracks. We’ll also examine existing dental work.
Small cavities can grow to destroy an entire tooth. A cracked tooth can cause pain or break off and create additional problems. Advanced gum and periodontal disease is the primary cause of tooth loss for American adults.
Oral cancer causes more than 7,500 deaths each year! If caught and treated early, these diseases can be controlled. Regular checkups are the answer.

When you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Poor oral health is linked to poor physical health. Your mouth is the key entryway to the rest of your body. If the mouth has a chronic infection or disease, then your entire body may be indirectly or directly exposed to the bacteria.
Research shows connections between periodontal disease and poor cardiovascular health for all people. There is also an increased risk of stroke, diabetes, pregnancy problems, respiratory diseases, and osteoporosis in women with gum disease. Some studies indicate that people who lose their natural teeth may have a shorter lifespan.
If you want to up your odds of a happy, healthy life, treat your body with respect. Put your money and effort where your mouth is! Try starting with the basics by learning the latest tips, techniques, and tools for top-notch oral hygiene.
Then, branch out. Incorporate a healthy diet, exercise, fresh air, and sufficient, uninterrupted rest into your routine. Eliminate unhealthy habits.
Remember, taking care of your teeth benefits your entire body! Teeth free from disease and decay can enhance your appearance, boost your health, and improve your outlook on life. Proper preventive care is crucial to maintain your best smile.
