“GOOD DENTAL HEALTH IS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR IN ACHIEVING A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE, ESPECIALLY FOR ADULTS!” – GARY ALTSCHULER, DMD
Having a healthy smile as you get older isn’t just for aesthetic reasons. It keeps you on the road to optimum oral health. Research has indicated possible links between the bacteria causing gum disease and systemic diseases like cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and pre-term birth; therefore, visiting your dentist regularly is imperative. In addition to examining and cleaning your teeth, your dentist will screen you for oral cancer, which generally occurs in people ages 45 and older.
