As we know, in these unprecedented times, it has never been more important to maintain optimum health and wellness. And while many are increasing their vitamin intake, exercise routine and healthy eating habits, it is also essential to ensure your oral health is its best right now.
It is widely proven that oral health is linked to overall health. So now more than ever, in the midst of a pandemic, scheduling your six-month dental visit is highly recommended. Keep reading for more.
Oral health impacts overall health
Studies continually indicate that oral health is linked to your body’s general health. And right now, we all need to ensure strong health and immunity!
Poor oral health can lead to not only cavities, bad breath, and gum disease, but even to more serious conditions like certain cancers, heart disease, stroke and diabetes. This can occur when bacteria makes its way to the bloodstream and hinders immunity.
The best way to avoid this is to see Dr. Milan every six months for your dental cleaning and exam. Your professional cleaning can remove plaque and bacteria that at-home brushing and flossing simply cannot. Not to mention we take extra care to examine your mouth for anything out of the ordinary, including risk factors for oral cancer.
The bottom line? Do not put off your dental visit…especially right now.
Your health and safety come first
At Birmingham Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, your health and safety come first…and always has.
We have always exceeded industry standards of sanitization and cleanliness; however, we are pleased to have put additional measures in place to further enhance these efforts.
Our staff is always wearing personal protection equipment and we take the temperatures of all staff members and patients upon entry. Masks must be worn at all times, except during treatment. We have installed a highly advanced device called the Fogger, which disinfects and kills bacterial, germs and viruses. Further, we have implemented the Vector Vortex, which utilizes high-volume oral suction to minimize air aerosols during treatments.
And, of course, we have minimized the number of people in our office to adhere to social distancing guidelines and always exceed the CDC guidelines of sanitizing, cleaning and sterilizing equipment and rooms.
In our office, you can always be certain your experience will be safe, relaxing and professional.
