It’s time to go the dentist again! It seems like you just went, and it takes so much time out of your busy day. Is going to the dentist every six months really that important? The answer to your question is: Yes! It’s very important, and here’s why: your oral health has been linked with other health concerns in the body such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and stroke, which means that the state of your oral health affects your overall health and well being. Dr. Rashpal Deol is your premiere dentist in San Ramon, and he reminds you not to miss your six-month checkup.
The Oral Systemic Link
Bacteria and infection that descends beneath your gum line and infects your bone and soft tissue causes periodontal disease. This bacteria can then enter your bloodstream and travel to other areas of the body and contribute to your other health concerns.
Dentists and physicians alike are now recognizing that our body systems are connected and maintaining optimum oral health ensures good overall health, and this is why it’s never been more important to take good care of your oral health and visit your dentist regularly.
Prevention is the Key
Dr. Deol believes that prevention is truly the key to maintaining optimum oral health, and this is why he wants to see his patients every six months, or twice per year. Besides removing excessive plaque build up, we also screen patients for oral concerns such as periodontal (gum) disease, oral cancer, and tooth decay at every checkup.
These health concerns are much better managed when detected in their earliest stages. Early detection means that you’ll have the least invasive and least costly treatment for your dental issues. In fact, being proactive about your oral health and your home care routine can often reverse tooth decay and gum disease.
Dr. Deol has been providing high quality dentistry to patients in San Ramon, Danville, Dublin, Pleasanton, and surrounding areas for over 25 years. He is friendly, caring, and experienced in helping patients achieve their goals for their smiles. Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile for a lifetime, and the first step is to schedule your cleaning and checkup appointment.
