Any dentist will tell you that dental care is important, but what we might not explain is exactly WHY dental care is important. Though you see a different doctor for your physical health than you do for your oral health, much of what Dr. Camps does is connected to your overall health.
The most common reason for visiting Dr. Camps is to get a teeth cleaning. And while professional dental cleanings are a great way to keep your smile bright, they are also vitally important to your health. Cleanings are Dr. Camps’ opportunity to assess your dental health & detect problems that may also affect your general health.
Dr. Camps can tell a lot about you & your health by looking at your mouth. Things like bad breath & the color of your tongue can be indications of health issues that may be affecting your entire body. The level of buildup on your teeth (plaque, tartar, etc.) can be an indication of how healthy & balanced your diet is.
Here are a few more examples of how your dental health & your overall health are connected:
With all this knowledge of how your dental health & your overall health are connected, be sure to keep your cleaning appointment with Dr Camps and bring up any concerns or questions you may have.
