Preventive Dentistry in Sarasota
Routine checkups and cleanings are the foundation of flawless smiles and optimal oral health, but they are more than just “teeth cleaning” visits.
Current research reveals that gum disease is linked to an increased risk for major overall health problems, including but not limited to stroke, heart disease, respiratory problems, osteoporosis, diabetes, low birth weight, and, most recently, dementia. Clinical research continues, but these health problems are why regular checkups and hygiene visits are vital, not only to our oral health, but also to our overall health.
As the eyes are the proverbial windows to the soul, the mouth can be a literal open door to overall body health. Taking this idea to heart, Dr. Hoffman and his team are dedicated to helping you monitor your oral and overall health, while achieving a confident, healthy smile.
Optimal Overall Health
As stated, heart disease and diabetes are just two examples of illnesses that have a direct correlation with periodontal disease and, depending upon each individual's needs, the American Dental Association guidelines recommends at least two dental visits per year. During these appointments, Dr. Hoffman and his team will screen you for oral cancer, periodontal disease, tooth decay, and for cracked, dated, or previous dental work that is failing. Such a thorough examination allows us to reduce the potential for unnecessary suffering or future complex treatment.
Tartar buildup or even an occasional bleeding gum while brushing are clear indications of the presence of invasive, harmful bacteria. Regular, bi-annual visits will help you sustain a healthier body and smile for years to come. Start now by brushing and flossing daily and by calling our Sarasota dental office to schedule an appointment!
