Oral Hygiene & Cleanings

 In Yaletown Dental Blog

We use our mouths every day; whether it’s to speak, eat, breathe, or smile, our mouths are one of the most important parts of our body. Why is it then that we don’t seem to care for our mouths like we would for our hearts or lungs? Countless studies have been conducted proving the direct correlation between oral health and overall body health. One of the most studied connections between oral and overall body health is the effect that oral health can have on the risk of developing diabetes. You should see a Vancouver dentist at least twice a year for regular check-ups and cleanings to maintain good oral health!
Your mouth is teeming with bacteria and improper care can result in inflammation in your mouth. This in turn, affects your ability to control blood sugar. Your ability to utilize insulin (the hormone that converts sugar into energy) is only maximized when your mouth is in optimal health and regular cleanings can help! Aside from the two-way link between gum disease and diabetes, your oral hygiene can also have an effect on healthy pregnancy.
More and more studies are proving the direct connection between oral health and the health of a pregnancy. These studies have provided information pertaining to the link between oral hygiene and the increased risk of delivering pre-term, low birth weight babies. Regular cleanings and check ups during a pregnancy are highly recommended to ensure the highest possibility of a healthy pregnancy. Not only do regular cleanings improve your health, but they help you look good too!
Regular cleanings from Yaletown Laser & Cosmetic Dentistry centre can prevent cavities, irritated gums and gum disease. Additionally, cleanings remove stains, and harmful tartar from teeth, reduce teeth sensitivities, and lead to fresher breath!
Regular cleanings are inexpensive, painless, and most of all, effective! They provide the most efficient way to ensure that you don’t incur future oral health problems down the road. Why not keep your mouth healthy now instead of fighting the uphill battle later? In addition, you can get rid of unwanted fat with Coolsculpting – non-surgical fat reduction treatment at Yaletown Laser Centre!
