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.

Link Between Oral And Mental Health

At Green Dentistry, we follow a holistic approach to dental care and believe the mouth, mind, and body are all connected. We do not believe the mouth should be treated as a separate entity, because it is not. Changes and feelings that are happening in your body and mind can greatly affect the state of your oral health. We often discuss the challenges that can come from certain medical conditions, but what is the link to oral and mental health?
