Olympia Fields Dental Associates is committed to providing a wide range of quality treatments to improve your oral health. That’s why we offer both preventative care to ward off disease and restorative services to bring your teeth and mouth back to health.
With expert staff and leading technology, Olympia Fields Dental Associates offers a number of services to keep your mouth in the best possible condition, including:
- Illness Prevention – During your regular biannual check-up, we will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw. We will check for any signs of decay, disease, or infection, and work to prevent possible illness from occurring in the future. Some of these preventative measures include professional cleanings, x-rays, and education on proper oral hygiene routines. These routine check-ups are vital to preventing common issues like tooth decay and gum disease.
- Restoration – In some instances, your dental exam might reveal underlying oral health issues that require treatment. These treatments include such procedures as root canals, fillings, dental implants, and more. Fixing these issues before they progress is critical to maintaining your health and ensuring more damaging health problems do not arise in the future.
- Cosmetic Improvements – The healthier your mouth, the more beautiful the smile. Not only do our services improve the health and structure of the mouth, they also improve the overall appearance of your smile. Cosmetic treatments might include professional whitening, veneers, bonding, and beyond.
Why General Dentistry is Vital to Your Health
The systems in your body are inextricably linked, so it is understandable how your oral health might impact your overall wellbeing. Gum disease is a clear example of this fact. This illness impacts 75% of Americans over the age of 35. At its most severe stages, gum disease can cause complications with diabetes, respiratory and heart disease, stroke, and even premature birth. Halitosis is another example—bad breath can actually be a symptom of more severe stomach issues. This is where general dentistry can be of great benefit to you.
By taking preventative measures and resolving existing issues, we can ensure that you stay in good health for years to come. We will treat any signs of decay, missing teeth, or infection that might lead to greater health issues down the road. However, to ensure that these measures can be effective, we strongly recommend that you visit your dentist every six months for a routine check-up. This will allow us to catch impending problems before they begin, and bring your teeth, jaw, and gums back to good health. If any problems should arise between your biannual appointments—including toothache, bad breath, or bleeding gums—be sure to contact our office as soon as possible. We’ll be sure to bring you back into good health so you can enjoy your best smile.
We want to ensure our Olympia Fields community is happy and healthy. If you have any questions about how to maintain your oral health, or would like to schedule a routine exam, please contact Olympia Fields Dental Associates today.
