The Importance of Oral Health

What many people don’t realize about oral health is that it is directly linked to your overall health in many ways. It makes sense when you think of the mouth as a microenvironment that plays a vital role in the complex system that is your overall health.

Did you know that plaque and tartar buildup in your mouth can be a sign of plaque buildup in your arteries? Did you know that gum disease left untreated can significantly increase your risk for serious systemic diseases like heart disease, stroke and diabetes? Eating a healthy diet and maintaining optimum oral hygiene is a great way to keep your mouth, your heart, and your whole body healthy and happy for life.

Take the first step toward a healthier you!

If fears of the need for potentially extensive, costly procedures have kept you from visiting the dentist, we’d love to address your concerns and welcome you with a New Patient Special. For a limited time, we’re offering 75% off a thorough examination, which includes bitewing x-rays and a 3D scan!

At Northside Family Dentistry, we want to change the way people feel about dentistry. Millions of Americans suffer from dental anxiety that prevents them from seeking the oral healthcare they need. Whether you are one of them, or you’re just not a fan of the dentist, we provide the warm, collaborative environment that helps patients feel comfortable in our care, and place their trust in our team.
