Good health is invaluable, and that includes your oral health. Research shows a significant correlation between oral disease and systemic health conditions. Gum disease, which affects 80% of the population, can increase a person’s risk for stroke, heart attack, Alzheimer’s disease, and other serious problems. Furthermore, oral cancer is responsible for nearly eight thousand deaths in America each year. Early detection and treatment could save your life.
Your six-month video examination and professional cleaning will allow Drs. Schuyler and Blyholder and our team to find areas of concern early, when conservative – or even preventive – measures can correct the situation. From battling bad breath to ending bruxism to alleviating chronic headaches, modern preventive dentistry improves lives. Strong, healthy teeth and gums can last throughout a lifetime, with proper care and maintenance.
