Did you know that good oral health (teeth and gums) doesn’t just ensure a healthier, more appealing and even self-confident smile? When you smile, your brain releases endorphins, serotonin and dopamine (your “feel-good” neurotransmitters), effectively lowering your heart rate and blood pressure. Your smile also impacts your general health and quality of life by lowering your risk of diabetes, heart disease, low birth rate for women and pregnancy complications.

Dental Hygiene Care

That is why our dentist, Dr. Paresh Patel, stresses healthy oral hygiene habits that include brushing, flossing, using mouthwash (as needed) and consuming healthy foods and drinks that support your smile. However, no matter how well you brush and floss your pearly whites, your routine professional dental cleanings performed by our skilled hygiene team are as essential to good health as seeing your general practitioner for routine exams, treating common medical conditions and referring you to other specialists for specialized treatment.

How Your Oral Health Impacts Overall Health and Well Being

Your smile and body are connected — through your digestive system and bloodstream — so uncontrolled oral bacteria grows rampant and passes through your bloodstream to other areas of your body. One of the worst culprits is uncontrolled gum disease. This serious oral issue is connected to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory issues and Alzheimer’s. Also, untreated tooth decay has become one of our country’s most common diseases, affecting 1 in 5 American adults.

Symptoms of Poor Dental Health

  • Chronic halitosis
  • Dry mouth and teeth
  • Gum disease 
  • Receding gums
  • Sores in the mouth
  • Toothaches/tooth sensitivity

Dental Cleaning and Exam

Our professional dental cleanings and exams are the most common treatment we offer, being arguably the most important service when it comes to preventative care. From there we can spot and treat dental problems early when they are least invasive and costly to treat.

When you come in for your routine dental cleaning appointment, Dr. Paresh Patel and our hygiene team clean your teeth meticulously, scraping away harmful plaque and tartar. Next, the teeth are flossed and tooth surfaces polished. We can then check for dental disease like cavities or gingivitis. Since we typically use dental X-rays during your visit, we can spot issues under the gumline like infection in the tooth roots so problems can be addressed and a damaged tooth can be saved. Our goal is to help you protect your teeth and gums for a lifetime of healthy smiles!

Our Family Dentistry of Frisco team generally schedule patients to come in every six months to get their biannual dental cleanings and exams. However if you are having dental issues like tooth decay or gum disease, you might need to come in more often. Also, should you (or a family member) find yourself having a dental emergency, we urge you to come in as soon as possible rather than waiting for your scheduled six-month appointment. Prompt treatment of any dental issue can ultimately save you pain, time and money.
