“Dentistry is not expensive, neglect is!”
Did you know that 90% of life-threatening diseases have some or the other oral symptoms? And yet dental care is not given the same importance as the rest of our body. 80% of the population don’t even visit a dentist!
Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial to our well-being. Health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, respiratory disease are all connected with oral hygiene. Studies show that there is a correlation between gum diseases and cardiovascular diseases that lead to heart attack and/or strokes.
Dentistry has a special branch for Preventive Dentistry that deals with prevention of disease while maintaining and promoting oral health. Preventive dentistry consists of counselling, fluoride application, diet care and regular visit to the dentist. Through preventive dentistry, you can establish control of dental disease and maintain good oral health through clinical tests, treatments and patient education.
