Oral Health is the Window to Your Overall Health

September 8, 2020

Have you ever sat and thought about how important oral health is? Dr. Kristine Marshall wants the public to know the importance especially during the time of a pandemic. With over 25 years of practicing as a local Dentist, Dr. Marshall takes oral health and one’s general well-being very seriously! Oral health offers clues about your overall health and problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body which is why it is important to learn more. You may ask well “what’s the connection between oral health and my overall health?”

Like other areas of the body, your mouth teems with bacteria, mostly harmless. But your mouth is the entry point to your digestive and respiratory tracts, and some of these bacteria can cause disease. Without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Also, certain medications such as decongestants and painkillers can reduce saliva flow; saliva washes away food and neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth, helping to protect you from microbes that multiply and lead to disease. While oral health is just one piece of the overall puzzle Dr. Marshall also recommends maintaining a healthy lifestyle which includes physically, mentally, and internally.

If you are wondering how you can maintain your overall oral health, consider the following: Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled brush using fluoride toothpaste. Floss daily. Use mouthwash to remove food particles left after brushing and flossing. Eat a healthy diet and limit food with added sugars. Replace your toothbrush every three months or sooner if bristles are splayed or worn. And lastly, schedule your dental needs with Dr. Marshall!

Dr. Marshall is proud to offer a new patient special to the community! A new patient will receive x-rays, an exam, as well as a cleaning for only $120. OR, if one is in need of a periodontal cleaning (Periodontal maintenance involves a cleaning that is deeper than a normal cleaning) the new patient will receive 50% off this service.
