Citizens of Decatur, it’s time to know the importance of healthy teeth and what we have to offer for you. From routine cleanings and fillings to bruxism devices, Corley Family Dental is prepared to handle all of your dental needs.
The Importance of Dental Health
Drs. Natalie and Chad Corley want you to know that a healthy mouth means a healthy body. Maintaining good oral hygiene and keeping up with your dental cleanings and exams gives you a much greater chance of keeping your natural teeth your whole life. If you decide to fall into bad dental habits, the risk of gum disease goes up dramatically.
Knowing vital information about gum disease and its connection with your overall body health could be life altering. The Academy of General Dentistry has found that gum disease and health complications, such as a stroke and heart disease, have relations with one another. Swollen gums, mouth ulcers, dry mouth and other gum problems can be a tall telling sign of gum disease, or something bigger. Don’t skimp on your gums, make sure to floss, brush, and visit us annually.
