Prevention of Cavities and Gum Disease
Your dentist or hygienist is best able to tell you whether you have gingivitis or cavities - especially since it often painless. Always talk to a dental professional to develop a plan to prevent gum disease and cavities.
Here is a quick quiz.
When you brush or floss your teeth, do you ever see traces of blood?
Do you gums ever seem red or swollen?
Are your teeth sensitive to cold or hot?
If you answered yes, you're not alone. About 75% of adults may have some degree of gum inflammation, a common gum disease known as gingivitis. If your teeth are sensitive to hot and cold this may be an early indication of cavities.
In our office, we recommend cleanings and cavity screenings atleast every six months. We will show you how to keep your teeth healthy between dental visits and screen you then treat you for any disease so we can help you maintain good dental health.

Maintenance for Good Oral and Overall Health
We all know that prevention is one of the keys to maintaining overall health. We exercise and watch what we eat to help ourselves be in good health. In much the same way, we should take good care of our oral (dental) health now to prevent gum disease and tooth loss later.
In recent studies, gum disease has been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pneumonia and other respiratory diseases.
How is this possible? For those with gum disease, bacteria can enter the blood stream and travel to other parts of the body, potentially worsening or causing other types of health problems.
What Can I Do? The good news is that with regular six months dental office visits, proper oral care, gum disease can be controlled or even reversed. Our office is committed to helping you maintain your oral health with regular cleanings and early detection of oral disease.
