October is National Dental Hygiene Month!
We asked our wonderful Hygienist at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design, Yee Fong:
What is your definition of “good oral health?”
Good oral health means to be free of cavities and gum disease (gingivitis and/or periodontal disease)!
Having a healthy mouth means being able to eat and enjoy the foods we love, which in turn effects our overall health!
Studies have shown untreated tooth decay and/or gum disease can lead to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease and premature and low weight babies.
