Cavities and decay are the common results of poor oral health and hygiene practices. Not brushing regularly and consuming a lot of sugar products are extremely harmful to your teeth. It may even result in tooth loss and chronic gum diseases. Moreover, research has shown a connection between overall health and dental care. For instance, symptoms of systemic conditions like AIDS or diabetes are often visible as mouth lesions or other oral problems. Sometimes, loss of tooth affects the smile of a person and may result in low self-esteem. It may also lead to malnutrition, speech problems, and other issues in a person’s work, school or personal life. You can prevent these problems with proper dental care and precautions. Our staff at Gardner Dental Group is completely committed to helping you.
