With dental offices re-opening this summer, many patients are getting familiar with the new health and safety guidelines our office – and offices across the country – are following in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic. As individuals gauge when they are ready to return to some of their normally scheduled routines, it’s important to keep in mind the value of preventative dental care to your overall good health.
While emergency dental care did not stop, safety guidelines now in place have allowed for the continuation of dental appointments and routine procedures. Six-month dental check-ups and other preventative care measures are an important part of your health care plan.
Keeping consistent dental visits on your schedule allows our team to monitor your oral health on the whole. Concerns like gum disease are linked to several heart conditions as well as diabetes, respiratory disease, and osteoporosis. By maintaining regular preventative visits you not only support healthy teeth and gums but also a holistic approach to your overall health. If you are due for your next check-up, call our office at (248) 852-3130 to get back on track!
