Healthy Mouth in Spokane Valley WA
Having a healthy mouth is important to having a healthy body
As we age, the connection between your mouth and your overall health becomes even more important. That’s because our mouths are a potential pathway for systemic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, lung disease, oral cancer and diabetes.
Regular dental care can help to identify and treat these issues, resulting in an improvement of your overall health.
Your Dentist Can Check for Oral Cancer
Dentists are trained to check for signs of oral cancer during your exams. When you receive regular checkups, this form of cancer is more likely to be found early, which in turn means you’ll be more likely to recover. Without regular checkups, the cancer may travel further through the body before it’s found and identified.
Keeping a Healthy Mouth
Maintaining a healthy mouth starts by brushing and flossing each day. You should also keep up with your regular dental exams twice a year and get treatment for issues such as gum disease when you need it.
