What is CHD?
Did you know that your family dentist can detect the early warning signs of heart disease, diabetes, and other serious health conditions? While other dentists focus on treating tooth damage and decay, our Downtown Grand Rapids dentist focuses on preventing oral health issues from happening in the first place.
The idea of complete health dentistry is that a healthy smile is linked to a healthy body.
This makes sense when you consider that your teeth and gums are just as connected to the rest of your body as your heart and lungs. Studies have suggested that gum disease can be an early symptom of diabetes and HIV/AIDS. This is because both these conditions lower your resistance to infection, which makes your gums more vulnerable to dental plaque and bacteria. This is just one of the many examples of how oral health is connected to overall health.
Preventative dentistry can help you save teeth and money. It’s much more affordable to pay for preventive care such as teeth cleanings or fluoride treatments, than it is to restore a tooth. Our Downtown Grand Rapids dentist offers services to prevent tooth decay so you can enjoy a beautiful healthy smile. It’s never too late to change your oral health habits.
Dr. Ritzema DDS at Complete Health Dentistry is dedicated to helping patients achieve their best smiles and overall health through comprehensive dental treatments. If you are interested in setting up an appointment at our Downtown Grand Rapids family dentist, give us a call at (616) 458-7267.
Preventive dentistry is a term we use to encompass all services meant to prevent tooth decay and other damage.
Regular preventive care, early diagnosis, and professional dental treatments can help you avoid more costly dental problems that may develop or be worsened by lack of basic preventive dental care. We are a Downtown Grand Rapids dentist that focuses on preventing oral health issues from developing in the first place. Our preventive dental treatments and procedures include:
- Teeth Cleanings
- Periodontal Treatment
- Fluoride Treatments
- Dental X-Rays
- Modular Periodontal Therapy
- Tooth Sealants
- Oral exams
- Oral Cancer Screenings
- Healthy Start Program
- And more!
Preventive dentistry also focuses on anticipating issues based on a patient’s age, medical history, and risk factors. For example, a patient with a history of smoking will have an increased risk for oral cancer. As a result, our Downtown Grand Rapids preventative care dentists will make sure to do an oral cancer screening during their appointment.
Our dentist also focuses on preventing cavities, especially in children. If you are at an increased risk for cavities, our dentist may recommend fluoride treatments or tooth sealants as a preventative measure. It is much less expensive to prevent cavities than it is to treat them.
Dr. Ritzema DDS at Complete Health Dentistry is dedicated to helping patients achieve beautiful healthy smiles.
