Reasons To Focus On Your Dental Health In 2024!

Having good oral health allows you to enjoy white, shiny teeth and an attractive smile, but it’s about more than just that. Your dental health also affects your overall health. Dr. Julia Pesavento, DMD and Dr. Erin Gunderson, DMD are committed to helping you maintain good oral health by providing you with excellent dental care and services. Below, we’ve discussed the importance of maintaining good oral health and why it should be one of your top priorities this year.

Reasons to Prioritize Your Oral Health in 2024

While it’s easy to get swept up in the busyness of day-to-day life, it’s important to keep up with your dental health and practice good oral hygiene habits. Here are some reasons why you should keep a strong focus on your oral health this year:

  • Keeps plaque and tartar under control, reducing your risk of gum disease
  • Helps you avoid periodontal disease, a serious condition that can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, and oral-systemic disease
  • Allows our dentists to screen for oral cancer and coach you on ways to improve your oral health
  • Reduces your risk of stroke, diabetes, heart disease, neurological disease, and other health issues
  • Keeps your teeth and gums healthy so you can chew, speak, and swallow without pain or discomfort and, ultimately, live a fulfilling life

Habits for Maintaining Good Oral Health

Practicing good oral hygiene habits, eating a healthy diet, and brushing and flossing your teeth are all essential for maintaining good oral health. Additionally, we recommend visiting our Dentists at least twice a year for a dental cleaning and exam.
