There is a big connection between your dental health and your overall health! They affect and influence each other. A large part of what we do at Denver Tech Dentistry is working with you to help promote and enhance your health. Our focus is always around health. Whenever we see you, we always inquire about your health, update your medications, and make sure your treatment plan is consistent with your goals, and supports your physical health.
THE BASICS (things we look for)
Of course, teeth cleaning and cavity fillings are all part of regular routine dental health care. It’s also important that we carefully look at and evaluate your overall dental health. Things like looking at your teeth, gums and surrounding tissues help us screen for oral cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. And our preventative dental checks can help save your teeth and improve your health and quality of life.
According to research, there is a huge connection between your dental care and your general health. Diseases such as diabetes and heart disease can be reflected by and influenced by your oral health. Keeping your gums healthy is extremely important for good health. Periodontitis is an inflammation of your gums, the tissue around the tooth. Seeing us regularly will help prevent tooth and gum disease, which can lead to bone loss and other health related issues.
General Dentistry Services:
Fillings | Fillings restore teeth with damage due to decay. If you have a cavity, a filling fills in the cavity and protects your tooth. Fillings are made from a variety of materials, including gold, porcelain, and composite resin. We’ll help you make the right decision on the type of restoration you may need.
Dental Cleaning | Dental cleanings are a part of regular, healthy oral care. The process removes plaque that can lead to cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. Dental cleanings are scheduled at least every six months based on your health, proclivity for tartar buildup and your overall oral hygiene routine.
Oral Hygiene | We want to help ensure that you continue to practice good oral hygiene. Good oral hygiene supports healthier gums and helps prevent cavities. Signs of good oral hygiene include teeth that are clean and free of debris and pink healthy gums that do not easily bleed.
Preventative | Preventative dental care involves more than regular cleanings. It also includes oral cancer screenings, examination of the tooth for enamel wear or bone loss, and examination of the tissue surrounding your teeth, such as your gums and cheeks.
Your Dental Health, and overall health, are important to our team. You can think of us as your partner in maintaining a healthy smile.
