Your oral health is significantly connected to your overall health: Healthy mouth? Healthy body.
Over the last fifteen years, overwhelming scientific evidence suggests that poor oral health is significantly associated with serious, major chronic diseases. These chronic conditions include cardiovascular and respiratory disease, diabetes, stroke, kidney disease, dementia, adverse pregnancy outcomes, stomach ulcers, oral cancers and obesity. A regular checkup & clean not only keeps your mouth healthy, but more importantly, keeps your body healthy. During your checkup & clean, Dr Britt will also be undertaking a comprehensive examination for signs of nutritional deficiency, general infection and oral cancer. Signs of these potentially devastating conditions first appear in your mouth and regular checks by our team of dentists can lead to early detection.
