An Important Message From Our Hygienist
- Posted on: Dec 19 2019
Why Our Practice Recommends Preventive Cleanings Every 3 Months to Some Patients
There are 700 reasons
700 is the number of species of bacteria that inhabit the space between your gums & teeth as well as throughout your mouth. Disrupting the bacteria every three months with a thorough, professional dental cleaning prevents the toxins, gases & acids these bugs produce from causing damage to your gums and jaw bone.
It is important to understand that the bacteria are not only present in your mouth. They travel throughout your circulatory system including your brain. For the last 25 years, the science has shown that these bacteria and their toxins damage the cells that line the arteries that line your heart.This leads to plaque and therefore hardening of the arteries.
Bottom line is that this office truly cares about your overall health. We have made a commitment to you to help you maintain optimal dental health. We need you to make a commitment to your dental hygiene schedule.Your hygienist , along with Dr. Slepchik, will discuss with you the specifics of your mouth and what is the best regimen for you to follow.
