dentist examining teethThere is a powerful link with your oral health & overall health. “A window into the health of the body”, this is what the ADA is quoted as saying. It may sound confusing, but if you stop to think about it, it makes sense.

Usually someone with poor oral health also has other health issues as well. When a patient develops infections or diseases in the mouth, like gingivitis or a cavity, it’s likely that other areas of the body need attention too.

Trouble is, most non-medically trained people don’t notice the ailments and develop anywhere in the body and mouth.
That is why it is vital to have a dentist you can trust examine your teeth a couple of times a year.

Without concerns of trying to offer treatments you don’t need or not comfortable with.
Dr. Moradian has been a strong advocate of the importance of not only oral health, but overall health as well. He focuses not only on treating general dental issues but to empower his patience with proper education that makes sense. Therefore patients can go on to live a happy and healthy life.

As explained, the connection between oral health and overall health can help prevent other health issues from occurring or help identify it.
If you are reading this then there is a strong probability that you’ve heard the dental phrase, “preventative dentistry”.

To clarify, preventative dentistry is actions to prevent gum disease, excessive wear on tooth enamel, avoiding cavities, and other common dental issues. When you are conscientious about oral health care then the need for costly dental treatments in the future will be reduced significantly.

There are many steps you can take on your own to prevent dental issues, such as brushing, flossing and keeping a proper diet. However, there are some steps that needs a experienced dentist like Dr. Moradian.

Digital X-Rays & Cone Beam CT Scan

Dental X-rays are used to show where your current oral health is, which helps understand when issues happen in the future. There dental issues could be cavities, gums, or growth & development of teeth.

Digital X-rays are a bit more comfortable for patients and emit much less radiation then typical X-rays. Being digital, they make it easier for dentists to pinpoint potential issues.

A cone beam CT scan is a type of computerized tomography that shows a 3D image of your jaw’s anatomy. This is especially useful when your dentist is planning implant treatment. The cone beam shows an enhanced image which allows absolute precision and allows for a more predictable placement of the implant.

Fillings

Like in all medical specialties, modern dentistry has evolved as well. Gone are the days of having to get silver fillings. If a filling is necessary, you can treat damaged, worn, chipped and decayed teeth with a custom filling that matches your teeth.

The tooth filling used to days are made from a porcelain or composite resin material that is not only very strong and resilient, but natural and beautiful looking.
