When was the last time you visited your local dentist in Te Awamutu? While most people know the value of consistent dental care and proper oral health, many don’t visit their dental clinics in Te Awamutu as much as they should. Research indicates that regular dental visits and a healthy mouth can preclude a slew of health issues.

Also, it’s been said that a high percentage of all chronic diseases that involve organs or encompass the entire body have warning signs that manifest in one’s mouth. These signals can include red and swollen gums, ulcers or sores in the mouth, dryness or increase in saliva and extreme gum issues. Some of the systemic diseases include leukaemia, heart disease, diabetes and oral or mouth cancers.

At Riverside Dental Care, we aim to make dental visits a comfortable experience for all our patients so they will visit us for regular oral exams. We know that as our patients’ trusted dentist, we may be the first health care practitioner to discover and help to treat or diagnose these some health problems. Our goal remains to help you rethink your health and have a positive impression of our dental clinic.

Improve your Health with an Experienced Dental Practice in Te Awamutu

In addition to visiting our dental practice for regular exam and cleanings, there are many things you can do on your own to ensure proper dental hygiene, a healthy mouth, and an overall healthy body. Some of these actions include:

  • Brushing Teeth: At least twice per day and for a minimum of 2-3 minutes. We recommend using toothpaste that contains fluoride.
  • Eating a Wholesome Diet: When you give your body the essential nutrients it requires, you may be able to prevent gum disease.
  • Flossing: Each day, floss between your teeth to remove any plaque built up in the places that your toothbrush won’t be able to reach.
  • Avoiding Tobacco/Cigarettes: Nicotine in these products is known to contribute to oral cancers and gum disease
    When you take control of your health routine and work to establish wholesome daily habits, you will gain more than just a winning smile. Formulating an appropriate oral care routine can help you experience enhanced health and wellness overall.
