Do You Have a Healthy Smile?
Do you ever wonder just how your dental hygienist knows that you haven’t been flossing even before you admit to it? Or how they can just tell it’s been a little longer than 6 months since your last cleaning? You may think we are mind readers, but actually we have a methodical evaluation plan to determine if you have a healthy smile and determine ways to keep your teeth healthy for your lifetime. Research shows that the health of your mouth impacts the health of your whole body, and even potentially impacts how long you will live.
Dr. Jill Smith and her team took the time to create a Healthy Mouth Baseline to show all the aspects of your oral health we evaluate every time we see that smile. At Dental Health and Wellness Boston, we’ve created a little cheat sheet for our patients on just how we “know” so much about your overall health, oral cancer risk, gum disease such as gingivitis, tooth decay, old leaking fillings, TMJ and much more!
