Independent dental hygiene-it’s about having options and accessibility.
Whether you are 1 or 101 you need professional mouth care. Mouth health=overall health. Just because you don’t have pain doesn’t mean you don’t have dental problems. One of the most dangerous things about oral disease and decay is that there are often no symptoms in the early stages. Oral cancer too often can be deadly only because it isn’t diagnosed in time. Catching disease or decay early is key. This is when it may be reversible or easily treated. There are usually only noticeable symptoms when you have big issues that may involve complex and expensive treatment. Don’t wait.
Did you know that more than 75% of the population has gum disease, or that decay is the third most common childhood illness. And that both of these conditions are 99% preventable. Prevention and maintenance are much more cost effective than treatment. Having untreated dental disease contributes to or exacerbates heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, poor self image, and many more systemic conditions. You don’t have to go to the dentist to have your necessary preventative mouth care.
Dental Hygienists are one of the only health care providers whose practice focus is prevention. Almost every treatment we provide is designed to improve your health and prevent disease and decay. Teeth “cleaning” is not like washing a window or your car.
