Dental hygiene is extremely important to maintain. Many people do not realize how imperative it is to take proper care of their teeth. When individuals do not take care of their teeth, they are putting their entire bodies at risk. The health of the teeth is directly connected to the health of the rest of the body. For example, some people who do not take care of their teeth sometimes find that they have serious heart issues later on in life.
The Benefits of Preventive Dental Measures
Individuals who do not seek regular dental care are putting their dental and overall health at risk. Even if a lack of dental hygiene does not cause serious health problems, individuals could still end up with serious problems in their mouths. Taking steps to prevent disease and decay is important, and at Jamie Elizabeth Sands, D.D.S., we offer several Oral Anti-AgingSM treatments to improve and maintain your smile.
What is Oral Anti-AgingSM?
When it comes to dental care, prevention is the best method, but early detection of dental issues is also important. During your appointment with Dr. Jamie Sands, the condition of your teeth and gums will be evaluated to determine the best course of treatment. Doctor Sands offers several Oral Anti-AgingSM options, including:
- Night guards to prevent teeth grinding
- Vitamin gel to treat weakened enamel that is only available at Jamie Elizabeth Sands, D.D.S.
- Balancing the pH level in the mouth
- Crowns, bonds, and/or veneers
- Gingival Graft surgery, which will require referral to a specialist
Before Your Appointment
Before visiting our office, it is a good idea to write down everything you would like us to know about your dental history before the appointment. Knowing your complete dental history will help Dr. Sands determine the best Oral Anti-AgingSM options for you.
Why Oral Anti-AgingSM Makes Sense
People may wonder why Oral Anti-AgingSM procedures are necessary when it comes to their teeth. Essentially, it works the same way as using anti-aging methods for the skin. As the skin ages, collagen and elastin are lost, and wrinkles and fine lines form. Care must be taken to protect and maintain the skin as it ages, and the same goes for your teeth. When the teeth age, they can start to weaken and become more susceptible to decay. People who can retain more youthful teeth may have a better chance of fighting against periodontal disease and other dental concerns.
