Discovering The Power Of Preventive Dentistry

April 30, 2024

At the office of Glen W. Hisel, DDS, we believe that a healthy smile is more than just a pretty asset; it's also an essential part of overall wellbeing. Researchers continue to find links between poor oral health and systemic conditions like digestive disorders, respiratory issues, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and even Alzheimer's disease. Even a simple dental infection can have serious consequences if left untreated.

The significance of regular checkups and care

A healthy smile doesn't just happen by accident; it requires consistent effort and attention. The best way to avoid cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems is through good oral hygiene, a balanced diet, a healthy lifestyle, and a plan for preventive dentistry.

We encourage all our patients to visit us twice a year for routine checkups and professional cleanings. This way, we can keep an eye on your oral health, reduce your risk of dental disease, and catch any issues early when they're easiest to treat. Regular exams also allow us to screen for oral cancer and monitor conditions that may affect your overall health and wellness.

Our commitment to healthy smiles

Your oral health doesn't end when you leave our office. Patient education is a crucial part of our preventive care program. We take the time to provide you with personalized guidance and resources to help you maintain good oral hygiene at home. During each checkup visit, we review your oral care routine and offer detailed instructions on proper brushing and flossing techniques to keep your smile clean and free from plaque buildup.

We also focus on helping children establish good oral health habits early in life. In addition to providing the necessary information and instruction for maintaining healthy smiles, we offer periodic fluoride treatments and dental sealants for added protection against childhood tooth decay.

A little prevention goes a long way

Don't wait until you're in pain or think something is wrong to see the dentist. By taking proactive measures and scheduling regular checkups, we can help you maintain optimal oral health and a radiant smile that supports overall wellness.
