A lovely smile is a wonderful thing, but when it comes to oral health, there’s really a lot more to the story than many people know, because more and more studies have demonstrated a clear link between oral health and overall health.
Did You Know That the Bacterias in Your Mouth Can Affect Your Body?
The reason for this is simple: the same bacterias that can cause damage to your teeth and gums, don’t just stay in your mouth. They can easily travel to other areas of your body, where they can cause other kinds of inflammation and/or health issues.
Untreated or partially treated dental issues can increase the likelihood of having heart disease, diabetes, strokes, lung disease and even giving birth to premature and low-birth weight babies.
A Good Family Dentist is Part of Your Family Healthcare Team
When it comes to finding the right family dentist in the Houston area, you need someone who has the qualifications, gentle touch, and experience you can trust.
This is especially true with younger family members, who are learning habits and attitudes that will determine a lot about their future oral health. Make no mistake, a poor experience in at the dental office can create a lifelong fear of dental care and procedures.
Fortunately, the opposite is also true, as learning how to properly care for their teeth at an early age can help children feel good about themselves and their smile throughout their lives.
Good Dentists Answer Questions and Listen
It is imperative that you find a dentist who practices gentle, comfortable dentistry, stays up to date on the leading dental topics and techniques such including dental implants, smile makeovers, down to the everyday general dental procedures, and is comfortable using the most cutting-edge techniques and technology to provide quality dental care to your family.
We are Multicultural and Multilingual
Additionally, if English is not your first language, you should probably seek a family dentist in Houston who speaks the language you are most comfortable with. At Greenspoint Dental, for instance, we proudly speak English, Spanish, and French.
One Stop Dental Care in Houston
In today’s busy world, few people have time to run to different offices for their dental care. That makes having a family dentist with expertise in several areas including orthodontics, general dentistry, and advanced cosmetic dental procedures a must.
While it is ideal to find a family dentist who is close to your home or work in the Houston area, a few minutes of extra driving is not a problem for most people, provided the dentist is well qualified and knowledgeable, and especially if they are responsive and helpful.
Life has a way of happening, and you need a family dentist who can accommodate a dental emergency such as a toothache if it becomes necessary.
Good Family Dentists Are Also Good Communicators
Besides advanced dental training and skills, you also need a family dentist who listens to your needs and takes the time to thoughtfully answer your questions. You want someone who will take the time to explain your treatment options, as well as your budget.
