Improving your dental health is the best way to achieve stronger teeth, better gums, fresher breath and a better functioning body as well. A healthy mouth is also linked to a healthier and more active mind which will promote better learning in school.

“Basham says preventive dental care is vital for a child’s well-being and learning ability.“Dental cleanings remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the teeth and gums. Leaving plaque and tartar on the teeth can lead to cavities, bad breath, gingivitis, gum disease and premature tooth loss. Also, oral health is related to overall health since the mouth is a passage way to the entire body. Poor oral health can cause premature birth and correlates to diabetes and congestive heart disease. Early detection of cavities can prevent tooth loss and pain by restoring the tooth before that cavity becomes large in size. The education portion of the cleaning equips the patient with the knowledge to improve their home care and assist in cavity prevention.”

Clean teeth are the best way to ensure that you are on the right path for a healthy future, that allows you the ability to fully appreciate everything that learning something new has to offer. Make sure to consult with your Aylmer dentist so they can help keep your teeth the healthiest they can be.
