A Philosophy of Overall Wellbeing
At Peddicord Family Dentistry, prevention and early detection are the most important aspects of general dental care. Sticking to a schedule of routine checkups and cleanings, for instance, can help you prevent issues like tooth decay and periodontal disease, which can require more extensive treatment to address later. If a problem does develop, then detecting and treating it early is the next best thing to prevention. Besides avoiding severe dental conditions, however, prevention and early detection also benefit your overall health in many ways.
Your Good Health Is Our Mission
Numerous studies have shown a variety of connections between the state of your oral health and your systemic wellbeing. For instance, patients who exhibit chronic periodontal disease and inflammation are often at a much higher risk of developing chronic inflammatory conditions like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, dementia, and more. Because of the significant importance of prevention and early detection, we employ a variety of advanced technology and diagnostic services to detect the earliest signs of dental disease. We can also personalize every treatment we recommend to ensure optimal results for your long-term oral-systemic health.
