Oral Health Affects More Than Your Mouth

In April we celebrate World Health Day, a day that brings awareness to global health issues. This is a good time to also remind patients of how oral health affects not just your teeth, mouth and gums but your systemic, or entire body health, too. What’s more, the condition of your mouth has an impact on the quality of your life and possibly your longevity, too. Would you like to learn more about this connection?

Passion And Purpose

We are fortunate to be able to do work we love here at Aesthetic Smile Design. In fact, Dr. Edeer will tell you that dentistry is his passion, and it shows in the results he is able to achieve for his patients. One patient recently told us that she gets compliments on her new smile on a weekly basis — she was even stopped in the street and told what beautiful teeth she had.

Hear What Our Patient Had To Say In This Video

One of our patients recently told us: “I don’t dread coming to the dentist!” Positive feedback like this is music to our ears. Our goal is to deliver the best dental care possible while making patients like you feel welcome and comfortable when you come in for your visit. We are humbled by what she and other patients had to say in a video we recently shot in our office.

Health Connections

When we recommend visiting the dentist every three, four or six months, it isn’t just to maintain your oral health but your overall health as well. Poor dental hygiene or medical conditions can deteriorate your teeth and gums, but the problems don’t stop at your mouth. Gum disease has been linked to serious illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Before you skip brushing and flossing your teeth tonight before bed, consider the connections between your gums and the following health issues:

Help the Child in Your Life

Did you know that February is National Children’s Dental Health Month — a month dedicated to raising awareness among children and their caretakers about the positive impact of dental hygiene for children? We know it isn’t always easy to get children to brush and floss their teeth, but a lifetime of good dental health starts at an early age.

Boost The Appearance of Your Smile

Do you wish you could change the look of your chipped or uneven teeth? Are you bothered by your discolored teeth or wish you could fill the gaps in your smile? These dental issues can be effectively solved using porcelain dental veneers. Veneers are made of wafer-thin porcelain and are cemented to the front of your teeth to improve their appearance — they can change the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth.

Oral Health and Alzheimer’s

We hope your new year is off to a great start! One thing we wish for all our patients in 2020 is good health.

That’s why we want to make you aware of one of the fastest growing diseases in the US, one that has a connection to oral health.
