A beautiful smile gives you confidence! But the benefits of taking care of your teeth extend far beyond just the appearance of your smile. At Bjorklund Dental Designs, we believe one of the most important aspects of the dental care in Wyzata we provide is our patient education. Dr. Bjorklund and the rest of our skilled team aim to give all our patients the knowledge and resources necessary to perform optimum home care, and for good reason.
In recent years, numerous studies have shed increased light on how oral health relates to whole-body health. Links have been established between periodontal (gum) disease and cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, preterm birth, and more. Advanced stages of gum disease can lead to inflammation, discomfort, foul odors, and even tooth loss. These issues alone can severely affect your quality of life.
With this in mind, we want to remind all of our patients in today’s blog post of the value of taking great care of your teeth and gums. At Bjorklund Dental Designs, we realize that our valued patients lead busy lives. With obligations to family, career, and friends filling up our schedules, its easy for many of us to rush through our dental hygiene routines, sometimes skipping brushing or flossing altogether! But, for your comfort, appearance, and your health, we suggest you slow down and take time to preserve your dental health, thus benefiting your systemic health!
Brush at least twice daily, floss each day, minimize your consumption of sugary foods and beverages, and drink plenty of water. It is also just as important to maintain a regular schedule of professional dental care in Wyzata with Dr. Bjorklund and team! So contact us today to reserve your appointment time. And check back regularly for more tips on how you can improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile with Bjorklund Dental Designs.
