It is often said that your oral health is the gateway to your general health as the two are linked to one another. To protect your overall well-being, you brush your teeth twice a day and floss every night. While this is important, it is only half of the care you need. You should also schedule a preventive appointment with your dentist every six months for a cleaning and checkup. Not only does this prevent complications with your oral and overall health, but it also leads to lower dental costs in the future.

You have healthy teeth–no cavities, great alignment. However, how healthy are your gums? Your gum tissue provides an important blood supply and nutrients to your teeth and also anchors them in your jaw. If infected with a condition called periodontitis, gum tissue recedes, leading to loss of both bone density and teeth. Periodontal therapy from Dr. Michael Curtis in Trumbull can help return your gums to vibrant health.
