Healthy Lifestyle, Healthy Teeth

Did you know that your oral health is also a window to your overall health, and that both your oral health and your overall health are connected? This is often referred to as the “systemic link”, because your oral health and overall health both depend on and affect the other. For example, eating a poor diet or smoking can have a negative impact on your heart and lungs as well as your gums and teeth. Likewise, not brushing or flossing regularly will allow bacteria to grow in between your teeth and gums, eventually leading to periodontal disease. This disease is not only the number one cause for tooth loss, but when the overgrowth of bacteria is swallowed, over time it can be linked to complications such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, premature births or low birth weight if you are pregnant, or endocarditis, an infection in the lining of the heart.

The best way to protect your oral health is to brush twice daily and floss daily, make healthy food choices, schedule regular checkups and cleanings, and avoid smoking.

The Comprehensive Oral Exam (COE) is the first step to maintaining your oral health and protecting your overall health. The COE combined with necessary x-rays allows Dr. Yabut to inspect your teeth, gums and bone, spot oral concerns such as periodontal disease or cavities, and screen for other diseases such as oral cancer. Because we know how important the COE and necessary x-rays are to the health of our patients, we offer this essential service at the special offer price of $149 (regularly $271) to all of our patients (Expires Dec. 31st, 2016).

Meanwhile, here at Dr. Yabut Smile we have also been focusing on maintaining a healthy lifestyle with weekly Zumba classes at Oneighty Fitness!
