Your oral health is more than important to your smile. While everyone wants as nice a smile as they can have, it is more important for your teeth and gums to be healthy for bite functionality. This allows you to consume food and beverages without discomfort. For people suffering from gum disease or missing teeth, the pain, difficulty, or discomfort they feel may impact their nutritional intake as well.

Seeing Dr. Miyake and the experienced dental team at his Fresno area practice about your general oral hygiene twice a year is very important. This allows us to take x-rays, check for lesions and cavities, as well as clean your teeth to avoid the possibility of gum disease. Prevention is the goal, and these visits allow Dr. Miyake to correct any problems he sees while they are still very small.

Oral Health and Body Connection

Although you may be aware of the importance of biannual cleanings, you should also be aware that there have been studies that link the bacteria in your mouth to such things as heart attacks, strokes, and other serious health problems. This is because the bacteria can get into your bloodstream and travel to different places in your body. So, when you visit Dr. Miyake for your general dental cleaning, you are not only protecting your mouth, but your overall system.

If you are in the Fresno, Clovis, or Madera, California area, and are in need of a general dentist, please contact Gregory G. Miyake, DDS to schedule an appointment today.
