Dental Health and Wellness
Your dental health is important to Great Plains Dental. Brushing your teeth and flossing, along with regular dental examinations, can prevent most dental diseases.
A few key health tips include:
- Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
- Floss your teeth once a day
- Replace your toothbrush every three to four months
- Schedule regular dental check-ups
Many systemic diseases may first display symptoms in your mouth. Swollen gums, mouth ulcers, dry mouth and other gum problems may also be an indication of other health-related problems. This can include diabetes, cancer, heart disease and more. Regular visits to your dentist allows them to monitor changes in your mouth and helps to diagnose potential health problems in the early stages.
For further information, the American Dental Association has created the Mouth Healthy website which provides a variety of information about dental health.
