Dentistry Services

Dentists work to diagnose, prevent, and treat oral health diseases, disorders, and conditions. They focus on the oral cavity (your mouth), the maxillofacial area (your jaw and face), as well as adjacent and associated structures and how they affect your body. Dentists encourage prevention of oral disease through proper hygiene and regular checkups. Conditions in the mouth can indicate other systemic problems, meaning issues in other areas of the body. These include diabetes, osteoporosis, and cancer. Studies have shown that gum disease is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and premature birth, which is why regular visits to your Dentist are so important.
