April is Oral Health Month

Have you been taking care of your oral health? At Dentistry at The Grove, we believe that proper oral health impacts your overall wellbeing.

Research reveals a connection between our oral health and certain chronic diseases such as stroke, heart disease, and diabetes.

Eat, Drink, and Talk

Good oral hygiene is important in your ability to eat, drink, and talk. Think of what sore or bleeding gums, missing teeth, infections and oral pain can do to your everyday health including what foods you can eat. Also, if you have a less than stellar smile, this can affect your confidence and your inclination to socialize.

Healthy Foods

Making healthy food choices is imperative to maintaining good oral health. Sugar is a breeding ground for bacteria and can cause all sorts of problems including cavities. Be sure to brush well after consuming sugar to avoid these negative consequences.

Dentist Check-ups

Depending on your individual needs, regular 3, 6 or 9-month visits with Dentistry at The Grove can improve your oral health. Any dental problems can be dealt with efficiently and effectively.

Be Your Own Hero

By brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day, you can improve the quality of your oral health.  Oftentimes, people neglect flossing and it is important to make this a part of your regular routine. Flossing helps removes debris lodged between your teeth and gums and keeps them healthy.
