The Value of Dental Care
Oral health is closely linked to our overall health, even though it’s a common occurrence that we don’t see the inherent benefits of maintaining routine dental services. Our providers understand the value of providing quality dental care at an affordable cost, not only in Kinston, but to several other surrounding counties.
Routine dental care not only brightens your smile, but it also provides countless benefits to your overall health. Regular cleanings help to reduce the damaging effects of plaque by removing it before it breaks down tooth enamel and causes cavities.
In adults, gum disease is a prominent cause of tooth loss, as plaque builds up below the gum line and begins to break down the supportive bone in your jaw. Regular, affordable dental cleanings significantly reduce the chances of tooth loss; much in the same way it prevents cavities.
Your mouth serves as a window to your overall health, and in fact, most dentists have the ability to detect early stages of disease through routine oral exams. Many life-threatening diseases like heart disease and stroke actually reveal themselves in your mouth before you begin to experience physical symptoms. You can think of your dental care as a preventive form of care that saves you from more costly and extensive procedures both with your mouth and your body.
Our providers understand the significance of taking a team-based approach to your oral care, and we encourage parents to begin their children’s dental care at age two. Below is a list of the available services in this department:
