Oral Systemic Health

Taking care of your smile is more than just brushing and flossing to keep your teeth white and clean. Caring for your oral health is linked to so much more than just your mouth. In fact, recent studies show that the condition of your oral health is linked to the rest of your body.

Oral systemic health has been highly researched, and shows that patients with concerns such as gum disease (periodontal disease) are also at a higher risk for developing diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure, and are more likely to have a stroke or heart attack than an individual with a healthy mouth.

Many conditions are shown to go hand-in-hand. For example, diabetes can make someone twice as likely to develop periodontal disease, while an individual with periodontal disease is more likely to develop diabetes. If the individual struggling with these concerns also smokes and does not follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen, they may find themselves to be considerably unhealthy in comparison to those that follow a healthy oral hygiene regimen, exercise daily, and eat a nutritious diet.

There is no excuse for not taking care of your teeth, even if you are afraid of the dentist. The Dentists at Richmond Smile Center specialize in offering sedation dentistry, which can help you relax and feel comfortable and at ease while attending your dental appointments.

The staff at Richmond Smile Center understands that you may have missed some dental visits due to the fear and anxiety of the dentist, and we don't judge. We are here to help you in a respectful, calming environment in order to get you back on track to a happier, healthier you while using gentle yet effective ways to restore your smile and keep it brilliantly beautiful!

Call Richmond Smile Center today to schedule a consultation appointment, no matter how long it has been since your last visit to the dental chair. We won't criticize, as we know dental visits can be anxiety-ridden for many of our patients. Let us change your perception of dental care today!
