What Does Your Mouth Say to the Rest of Your Body?
At Shadow Creek Ranch Dental Specialists in Pearland, one of our main objectives is to always educate our patients on the importance of taking care of their teeth and achieve impeccable oral health. Your oral hygiene actually has a direct impact on the increase of your risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. It isn’t a scare tactic. They are simply the facts. These are simply warnings that, if heeded, will increase your chances of not having these diseases.
What Does It Require to Keep Up Good Oral Health?
Dr. Corbet Ellison, pediatric dentist and founder of Shadow Creek Ranch Dental Specialists, wonders why people always seem to be able to schedule several hours a day or numerous weekly hours for the gym or even set aside time to not miss their favorite TV show, but not enough people take the time to brush twice daily for at least three minutes, or even take just two minutes to floss to remove hard to reach plaque and food that can become stuck in between teeth. It is merely a few minutes each day that can actually extend your life and, more importantly, to extend the quality of your life.
“We have to start correlating and putting that in our schedule and putting that as a priority and not just as one of those things we don’t have to do because we don’t have that instant reaction when we don’t do it,” Dr. Ellison said.
