While at our Wesley Chapel dental office, we make sure you receive the highest level of service and ensure our dental work is of the highest quality. To ensure you maintain great oral health, your personal oral hygiene routine needs this same level of quality. Our family dentist and hygienists can help you establish a dental hygiene routine to keep your teeth healthy and white.
Your teeth are not the only important part of your mouth. Your gums are essential to oral hygiene as well. We can provide periodontal cleanings and treatment, or refer you to one of our recommended specialists.
Benefits of Annual Dental Appointments
It’s easy to put off annual dental appointments. What’s skipping one year, right? Unfortunately, in many cases, one year turns into five or more, and as a result some dental and oral conditions are allowed to fester until immediate and expensive care is needed.
“I Can’t Afford Dental Care”
At Mystic Oaks Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we understand that many lack dental care not because they don’t recognize the benefits, but because they can’t afford it. We do our best to make dental care available to everyone in Wesley Chapel through frequent New Patient Specials and our Dental Savings Plan. When you can finally have the care you need, you will find the investment in your dental care will pay off in more ways than just being reminded to floss.
Your Oral Health is Connected To Your Overall Health
Holistic approaches to healthcare are becoming increasingly more popular. This trend speaks to how systems of the body are interconnected, and how, for example, how a skin blemish on your face may suggest other health issues.
Dental health is no different: conditions found in other parts of your body can affect your oral health and your oral health can have an effect on the rest of your body:
- Gum disease is linked to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and general inflammation
- Some health conditions can weaken your immune system and heighten your risk for oral infections
- Oral cancer is common and can be caught with cancer screenings that accompany your dental appointment
Some patients find that by improving their oral health, other conditions elsewhere in their body improve. The same is often true for conditions that affect oral health: as the health of a patient improves in one area, their oral health is also improved.
Steps for Quality Dental Care
Annual dental appointments are only part of the care that your teeth need to stay healthy. You must take time to care for your teeth daily. Here are some tips for keeping your pearly whites looking and feeling their best:
- Brush, floss, and use mouthwash daily
- Adopt a healthy lifestyle by eating a nutritious diet, exercise, and rest
- Limit your intake of harmful foods and drinks
- Quit destructive habits such as smoking and excessive drinking
- Keep up with annual dental appointments and screenings
- If you experience discomfort consistently, make an appointment with your local dentist
