What is comprehensive dentistry anyway?
The world of dentistry encompasses a lot these days, and you’d be surprised to learn of all the different areas of dentistry practiced by dentists today. Comprehensive dentistry focuses on the wide variety of preventative and general dental care procedures necessary to keep patients in optimal dental and oral health. More and more, comprehensive dentistry, and the dental offices who practice it, is beginning to include cosmetic procedures. Just as dental and oral health are top priorities for every dental patient, so are bright, beautiful smiles.
An important part of comprehensive dentistry is making patients aware of the link between their dental care and their overall health. Most people just don’t know the important link between oral health and total body health. How could they? Dental health doesn’t get as much attention as something like the link between diet and overall health, but the link is a strong one. For instance, did you know that there is a strong link between gum health and heart health? It’s true, patients with poor periodontal health are at increased risk for cardiovascular problems, especially if they are senior.
Our Commitment to Consultative Care
Comprehensive dentistry practices like Richards Dental Care focus on preventative care options because they’re essential not just to dental health, but to overall health. When you come to Richards Dental Care for a routine teeth cleaning and check up, both Dr. Richards, Dr. Frost and your hygienist will give you the status of your current dental and oral health, and let you know if you are at any particular risk for developing other conditions, as well as what you’ll need to care for your teeth in between visits.
While you have a diverse array of treatment options for your dental health, comprehensive and preventative care are a must for any patient. At Richards Dental Care in Hendersonville, you can trust us to provide you and your family with comprehensive care that takes care of your dental and overall health.
