Did you know that medical research shows there’s a measurable link between general health issues and common oral infections? It’s true! According to the Mayo Clinic, by not taking care of your teeth, you put yourself at risk for cardiovascular disease, respiratory infections, diabetic complications, and possibly dementia later on in your life.

After all, what may first seem to be a simple toothache can easily become an infection that can lead to health issues. So you want to get your teeth checked before any problems arrise!
To develop healthy habits early, there are some things you need to do. First, regularly scheduled dental visits should begin in early childhood.

Even a simple cleaning can greatly improve your oral health! During your regular exam, our dentist will give you instructions on how you can improve your oral hygiene between visits and could recommend preventative treatments such as sealants. Other preventative measures include X-rays and fluoride treatments. These treatments are meant to stop any dental issues before they occur so listen to your dentist!
Tooth decay is very common and very serious. As the tooth’s surface begins to break down, your tooth will develop tiny holes just big enough for bacteria to enter. This leads to cavities, pain, infection, and even tooth loss. To fix the issue, our dentist will remove the decay and place a filling in the tooth. Other restorative procedures include fixing dental trauma, perform root canals, treat periodontal gum disease, and placing crowns and bridges or dental implants.
Maybe your smile is less than perfect and you want to fix that. That’s where cosmetic dentistry comes into play. Dr. Grossman offers an array of cosmetic dentistry services such as porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and Invisalign braces.
Sometimes, you can’t wait to schedule an appointment. If you’re in pain, all you can think about is getting rid of what’s causing you discomfort. If you’re experiencing swelling gums, tooth pain, or general discomfort, Dr. Grossman will do what it takes to solve the issue as quickly as possible.
