Have you ever wondered why Dr. Moretta continuously advises his patients to schedule periodic dental cleanings and examinations at least once a year?
Many people probably think: why do I need to come back? I am not in any pain. I don’t think I have any problems. I am fine the way I am!
Well, if you consider the facts and the many studies published on prevention, you may want to think twice about your dental health.
If performed routinely, a simple examination and thorough dental cleaning may save your life. Recent studies have shown a correlation between the bacteria that cause gum disease and the inflammation associated with heart disease. Brushing and flossing can make a difference. However, it is simply not enough. Any accumulation of bacterial plaque and tartar should be removed by a registered dental hygienist or dentist through routine prophylaxis.
Annual examinations by a dentist with the knowledge and experience of Dr. Moretta is essential for maintaining your overall health and well being. A complete examination includes blood pressure and oral cancer screenings along with the necessary dental x-rays and oral exam.
Get involved in your oral and general health by having regular dental exams and cleanings.
