Omaha Preventative Dentistry
A new paradigm between dentistry and medicine is now developing regarding patient care. As the oral systemic connection is more clearly understood, dentists who are trained in diagnosing oral and periodontal disease will play a greater role in the overall health of their patients. Many times, the first signs of unnatural systemic health conditions reveal themselves in changes within the oral cavity. Medical histories should be carefully reviewed when “at risk” patients are identified.
We now have reason to believe that the health of your teeth and gums may have a significant effect on the overall health of your body. Recent scientific literature suggests a strong relationship between oral disease and other systemic diseases and medical conditions.
Preventative Dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing and treating oral disease. This area of dentistry focuses on procedures and life habits that help patients prevent the beginning or progression of oral disease, such as at-home dental care as well as dental care by a our dental staff.
