General Dentistry St. Cloud, FL
At Modern Dentistry of St. Cloud, we have built our practice on a foundation of preventive dental care and patient education.
Patients who know more about their oral health tend to take better care of it. Good home care is essential, and so is visiting the dentist every six months for examinations and cleanings.
Because prevention is so crucial when it comes to your oral health, regular examinations mean problems can be detected while they are still small. This benefits the patient because small problems are less invasive, less painful, and less expensive to treat. When you skip routine checkups, small problems tend to grow into big problems.
Dr. Yang Hua looks forward to getting to know you and providing you and your entire family with gentle, high-quality, effective dental care to ensure you can enjoy a healthy smile for life!
You Need Good Oral Health to Enjoy Good Overall Health
Perhaps you already are a diligent brusher and flosser at home. You might be wondering if you really need to go to the dentist for routine visits.
But the fact is that your toothbrush and dental floss just cannot reach all of the tiny spaces in the far reaches of your mouth the way a professional hygienist’s instruments can. Brushing and flossing daily will reduce the buildup of plaque and tartar along your teeth and gum line, but these habits don't completely eliminate it. Only professional dental instruments used by a skilled professional can do that.
Regular examinations and cleanings also mean your gum health can be checked on a regular basis. Many people have no idea that gum disease is the main reason for tooth loss in this country. You might think your gums are healthy, but without visiting your dentist, you have no way of knowing for sure.
You Can’t Have Healthy Teeth without Healthy Gums
Gum disease can creep up on you without your knowledge. Often you have no symptoms whatsoever.
In its earliest stages, gum disease is highly treatable. When gum disease goes unchecked, that’s when problems start—and get worse quickly.
If you do have symptoms, these might start out as gums that bleed when you brush or floss. Your gums might also be swollen and tender. If you don’t get treatment, symptoms will get worse. By the time you notice pockets of pus around your teeth and gums, bad breath that can’t be brushed away, or teeth that appear to be longer because of gum recession, you are on the path to tooth loss.
Gum disease can also impact your overall health. More and more studies are now showing a connection between infection in your mouth and the development of serious disease in your body, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and others.
