Your Gums Are The Foundation To Your Oral Health

When you think about your mouth, it is important to think about it as a whole structure. Many people often think only of their teeth when they go to the dentist, but that is not all we do. At Green Dentistry, we take a holistic approach and consider your entire mouth as well as your whole body. One of the most important aspects of your oral health is your gums. They are the foundation of your mouth. When you think of a highrise building, it would collapse if it didn’t have a strong foundation. Your mouth is exactly the same. If your gums are not strong, your teeth will have no support and will collapse.

Importance Of Routine Care

At Green Dentistry, we believe in keeping our patients informed on how to properly care for their overall and oral health. When we have the proper knowledge, it helps us make better life decisions that can ultimately help prevent oral issues such as cavities and infections. One of the best ways to optimize your dental health is through routine oral health examinations and cleanings. During these routine appointments, we are able to thoroughly examine your oral health and detect any issues that may affect your oral health and quality of life moving forward. We also remove any lingering plaque from along the gumline and in hard to reach places to help prevent cavities and other oral health issues.
