What is Preventative Dental Care? Spokane, WA


Protecting Health through Preventive Dental Care at Northview Family Dental in Spokane, WAMany people make the mistake of thinking that they only need to see the dentist when they have a toothache or a sudden injury to their mouth. Unfortunately, these people tend to end up suffering from various oral health ailments that might have been prevented by regular dental checkups.

The Risk of Heart Disease


When you think about your risk for heart disease, chances are you do not think that you should call your dentist - but you should! Studies have shown that gum disease and heart disease may be directly related. Even people that do not have any of the standard risks of heart disease including obesity, a smoking habit and high cholesterol still suffer from heart disease. The common denominator in these cases is gum disease. This risk could be eliminated with regular semi-annual appointments with the dentist.

Hormones Change Things


Everyone goes through various hormonal changes throughout their life. Aside from hormones affecting moods, the various ways your body acts, and even skin blemishes, there are the changes to your oral health. Women are the most affected by hormonal changes during times that include puberty, pregnancy and menopause. Changes in hormones can cause problems with a woman's gums including swollen gums and an increased risk of gum disease.

Lifestyle Changes


People of any gender and age could be damaging their oral health through various lifestyle habits, whether it is a soda habit, smoking or poor dental hygiene. Taking the time to see a dentist twice per year can help you get advice on how to change these habits and how best to enhance your overall dental health to ensure optimal oral and physical health for many years to come.
