Quality Care through Comprehensive Dentistry
To make sure your teeth—and, therefore, your entire body—stay healthy, our phoenix dentist provides comprehensive dentistry, which is the combination of multiple procedures to provide more effective oral health care. If a section of your smile needs multiple procedures to save it from tooth decay and gum disease, Dr. Morse can perform a periodontal deep cleaning and filling placement in one visit to halt these conditions when they are small. Our dentist can provide more solutions to meet more distinctive preventive needs.
Why Comprehensive Prevention Matters
The human mouth is full of bacteria that can harm its health. Whenever these bacteria feed on the leftover debris of the food you eat, two destructive reactions occur. The first is that acid is produced by bacteria digesting food. This acid can dissolve the structure of your teeth to cause cavities, which could eventually lead to tooth loss. The second is that the bacteria collect on and adhere to your teeth. This buildup of bacteria and the debris they feed on is called plaque. The body’s response to bacteria is inflammation. Prolonged irritation leads to gum recession and eventual bone loss. This destruction of the tissue is gum disease.
In addition, the loss of teeth and the presence of gum disease are linked to several greater health problems, especially when both conditions are present at the same time. Your likelihood of experiencing heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and other cardiovascular problems rises as the severity of these conditions increases.
