Dr. Ghim Protects Henderson Smiles with Comprehensive Preventive Care
If you’re like most people, there aren’t enough hours in the day to accomplish all of the tasks on your to-do list. We understand. But it’s important to prioritize oral health care. A small amount of time spent at our Henderson dentist’s office could have you time, expense, and pain in the long run.
Prevention is Power
Attending six-month checkups and cleanings at Black Mountain Dental lets Dr. Ghim identify problems in the early stage – when a few easy changes to your homecare routine may be the only remedy needed. If dental treatment is necessary, it’s likely that a minimally invasive, conservative therapy may be what the doctor recommends. When you make time for preventive dental care, you win! You’ll spend less time in our office and more time enjoying your smile – and your life.
The Link between Oral & Overall Health
Numerous studies illustrate the link between oral and overall health. Bad bacteria in the mouth – the kind that cause gum disease – have easy access to the rest of your body and can damage internal systems. Dementia, osteoporosis, heart disease, respiratory problems, low birth weight, and diabetes complications are just a few of the whole-body health problems linked to oral bacteria.
Comprehensive Checkups & Cleanings
Your checkup at Black Mountain Dental will include:
- An evaluation of the health of your gums
- A cavity check
- An oral cancer screening
- An assessment of your bite alignment
- X-rays, as needed
Dr. Ghim will discuss any issues you may be experiencing and recommend therapies for prevention or treatment. Your professional dental cleaning will remove tartar and plaque buildup from your teeth, setting the stage for healthy gum tissue and aiding in the prevention of dental disease.
