"Dr. Edeer saved my life!
If you know how important good dental health is... If you know your overall health depends on good dental health... you owe it to your friends, family and your life to have a consultation and get on the road to good dental health with Dr. Edeer and his excellent staff.
I sought out Dr. Edeer as a new dentist for us. At our initial consultation, he used his state-of-the-art equipment and panoramic x-ray machines to analyze our teeth, gums and mouth. His analysis revealed how serious the state of my dental situation was, I was unaware of this. He showed me what problems I had, and then introduced his plan for correcting my situation by explaining and showing me every step he was going to take. I am excited to say now, that in a short period of time, Dr. Edeer totally reversed all my problems and I am happy to be showing off my beautiful smile and teeth confidently, all day long.
Dr. Edeer was also wonderful to husband who has a handicap. Dr. Edeer's office and building are beautiful and allows easy access to everyone.
Dr. Edeer is a one stop dentist. You do not have to bother seeking other specialist for other procedures, Dr. Edeer does it all. He is highly education and keeps learning all the latest procedures, technology and medicine.
Thank you Dr. Edeer!
We love you and recommend everyone to see you today!
You are our best Insurance Policy for Good Health!

What is oral systemic health?

Historically, dentistry focused on repairing teeth. In modern times, the scope of dental care expanded to focus on oral health, preventive medicine, and aesthetic improvement. A growing collection of research shows that the dentist also plays an important role in your systemic (affecting your entire body) health, quality of life, and possibly even longevity. Your mouth is not separate from the rest of your body, and its health is not separate either. This very important connection is called Oral Systemic Health.
Dr. Gary Edeer, founder of Aesthetic Smile Design, is a member of The American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH), an organization dedicated to promoting awareness and health-conscious practice among the public and health professionals of all fields. In our office, patient health and safety are always the top priority. We know how crucial a healthy mouth is and we want you to understand that as well. We want to arm you with the knowledge to protect your overall health; patient education is one of the cornerstones of our practice.

What it means to you

Many studies conducted in recent years have established a connection between periodontal disease and certain health conditions, including:
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Preterm birth and other pregnancy problems
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Kidney disease
  • Stroke
  • Many more

The nature of the connection

Can gum disease actually put your life at risk? A staggering amount of research indicates the answer is, “Yes.” There is still much to be learned about the precise nature of the oral systemic connection, but it appears that periodontal disease has an adverse effect on your health for a number of reasons.
Originally, the connection was largely blamed on bacterial spread. Food, liquid, and oxygen enter through your mouth to be dispersed by the lungs and stomach. It stands to reason that a percentage of the harmful bacteria in your mouth may travel with those substances, spreading throughout your body. However, researchers discovered an even more insidious effect of oral disease, and that is inflammation.
Your body naturally responds to infection with inflammation. When the infection clears up, the inflammation goes away. Gum disease does not go away without treatment. Chronic infection, leads to chronic inflammation, and science is just beginning to understand how harmful that can be. The body creates greater amounts of certain proteins and other elements, which circulate freely through your bloodstream.
The best way that you can protect yourself from the dangers of oral disease is to take care of your mouth, and see a health-conscious dentist. Call (862) 766-6363to schedule an appointment at Aesthetic Smile Design, located in Wayne, NJ.
