At Main Station Dental Care, we believe that, just as any healthy lifestyle begins with what we put into our bodies; our overall well being begins with good oral health. Infection in the gum tissue, and active tooth decay contribute to chronic pain in the head, neck and jaw. This depletes energy, decreases the body's natural immune response to illnesses, and overall decreases quality of life. Just as one says the eyes are the portholes to the soul, the mouth is a porthole to your systemic health. There are numerous studies on the direct correlation between periodontal infection in the mouth and cardiovascular disease. The large amount of bacteria in your mouth travels in the blood stream to the major organs including your heart, causing athroscleroic plaques to form in the arteries. Our dental hygienists are highly skilled in periodontal treatment and management. Staying current with your regular dental visits is crucial to systemic health. Please check out ADA.com for more information on periodontal disease and cardiovascular health.
As Main Station Dental Care, we believe that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. That's why we focus on thorough exams in which we will check the overall health of your teeth and gums, do an oral cancer exam, and take x-rays when necessary. A review of your medical history will help us stay informed of your overall health. Make sure to update us with any new medications and illnesses at every dental visit.
When we smile, we present to the world our best selves. A bright, healthy smile can bring joy to our lives and others'. What's more important is that when we are free from discomfort, we are able to enjoy the vast array of tastes and tectures that nature has to offer. At Main Station Dental Care, we are not only focused on the beauty of your smile, but concerned about your overall health.
