Like charity and a three day long Netflix or Hulu binge, good oral hygiene and care always begins at home. Consuming sugary foods and drinks in moderation, along with good oral hygiene practices will put you and your family ahead of the curve when it comes to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, and in preventing gum disease. But in addition to brushing and flossing every day, professional Oral Healthdental care is also necessary to rid the teeth and gums of traces of food, bacteria, plaque, and biofilm that a toothbrush and floss can leave behind.

Preventive Dental Care in Cumberland

As with general health, many people don't go to the dentist until something goes wrong, often in the form of cavities and tooth decay (and the resulting pain), or signs of gingivitis and gum disease, like bleeding and receding gums. Dr. Angeles Felix, a family dentist at Dental Associates of Cumberland in Rhode Island, gently encourages patients to think about routine dental exams as an investment not only in their oral health but in their general health and wellness as well. The reason is simple. In addition to possible tooth loss, advanced periodontal disease has been linked with increasing the risk of complications associated with serious conditions like diabetes, cardiac disease, and stroke. When bacteria accumulates between the teeth and below the gum line, it can cause inflammation, which when left unchecked can often lead to more serious health problems.
