Many people aren’t aware that more and more studies are revealing a close connection between oral health and systemic health.
What this means is that if your mouth isn’t healthy, this can make your body sick. Serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancers have been associated with poor oral health.
When your dentist examines your mouth on a regular basis, potential problems are detected early when treatment is less invasive—and less expensive.
Don’t let busy schedules get in the way of your family’s oral health. With our extended office hours, we have a time available that is convenient for your and your family. Visit Dr. Yang Hua twice a year to ensure that your oral health is contributing to overall good health.
Prevention is always our goal, which is why it’s crucial you stay current with dental checkups.
Many dental problems pop up with seemingly no signs or symptoms, but they can be spotted by your dentist during an examination or x-ray. A small filling that is treated today doesn’t turn into a root canal that is needed tomorrow.
Because you can’t have healthy teeth without healthy gums, your periodontal wellness is important. Many people in this country have gum disease, but because it often comes about with no signs or symptoms, they have no idea that they have it. Gum disease that isn’t treated will continue to get worse, ultimately leading to tooth loss.
Start your kids on the path to good oral health early by bringing them in when their first molars make an appearance. Dr. Hua enjoys working with children and teaching them the basics of why it’s so important to take good care of their teeth.
Children who go to the dentist regularly tend to grow into adults who do the same.
If you have ever envied a movie star for his or her perfect smile, you should know that cosmetic dentistry might just be behind those straight, white teeth.
You might not have realized it, but cosmetic dentistry is not just for the Hollywood A-list. You can get most of the same treatments done right here in the Orlando area, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, tooth-colored fillings, invisible braces, and dental crowns.
When teeth are missing or damaged, it can cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile. It might also cause practical issues, such as making it difficult to chew your favorite foods.
Dental crowns are used cosmetically, but they are also used to strengthen a damaged tooth or repair a tooth that is fractured by a large filling.
If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge or a full set of dentures can give you back the form and function of your smile.
